Inside a modern nature retreat with serene views over Table Rock Lake

Hufft architects have designed this modern nature retreat that steps down the hillside with sweeping lake views, located in Ridgedale, Missouri. Perched over Table Rock Lake, this 2,954 square foot family getaway home was designed to maximize views and its natural surroundings. 

The goal of this project was to create a home for a young family to enjoy nature and outdoor activities that are provided by the lake. Positioned on a steep lakeside property, the design of this home was conceptualized as multiple terraces — a living and dining patio, a pool, and a swath of lawn.

Since this is a second residence, it would be used to host a number of family and friends as guests, therefore its owners wanted the main focus to be on spaces to gather. For convenience and ease of access, the main level is where socializing and activity happens. A large outdoor patio spills off the main living area, extending the interior out into the open and blurring the boundary between indoor and outdoor living – precisely what the owners wished to achieve.

The upper and lower terraces, which feel more private in nature, are the living quarters. The primary suite comprises the lower, with multiple guest rooms, a children’s room with built-in bunk beds, and laundry making the upper terrace.

Exterior materials, interior finishes, and furnishings were selected with the intent of feeling sturdy and lived in. You get a sense of this as soon as you approach the house and see the Corten steel that has already begun to weather.

The sturdy architecture of the home’s exterior morphs into a soft, bright interior when you enter. The interior is fully framed around maximizing views of the lake, and intentionally minimal for this same purpose. The color palette is warm and neutral. With floor-to-ceiling windows in most areas of the home, natural light fills the home, even on overcast days.

Feeling at home on its inclined site, there is a sense of peace instilled immediately upon arrival. The dwelling is designed for generations of family members and friends to enjoy varied access to the site’s seemingly-unlimited views. Each space feels grounded, warm, and protected, without obstructing any views of the serene lakeside surroundings.

What We Love: This modern nature retreat offers inspiring views that have been maximized throughout its design. An open and spacious floor plan, clean lines and a neutral palette helps to not detract from the breathtaking surroundings. We are loving the overall details of this home and how its positioned on the site, terraced down the hillside, to ensure limitless views of the tranquil lake below.
