This contemporary lake house retreat is a relaxed, casual, comfortable, and sophisticated getaway home designed by Morgante Wilson Architects, located in Greenlake, Wisconsin. This sizeable residence accommodates a family of four, along with welcome crowds of visitors, effortlessly.

A single, spacious, multi-functional public space – including an open concept kitchen, family room, and living room – facilitates entertaining and offers multiple venues for gathering, whether guests include extended family members or those invited to take part in the large-scale charity events that are often hosted here.

Versatile seating – just one component of Morgante Wilson’s comprehensive interior design scheme – enables intimate opportunities for dining and conversation, or, when components are adjoined, accommodating greater numbers. An expansive wall of glass ushers the outdoors in, and allows residents and guests alike to appreciate stunning lake views. Sleek, organic, and even a bit rustic, this home exemplifies refined informality.

This is useful for an ultra-private “getaway” space, panic rooms, providing quick access between rooms (without sacrificing wall space), or sometimes… Just for fun! The designers affectionately refer to them as “Scooby-Doo Doors”, as the gang always saved the day by solving problems in an entertaining way! The bookcase is painted in Iron Mountain 2134-30 | Benjamin Moore.
