Stephan Maria Lang, of Design Associates, designed House S as a California-inspired villa overlooking Lake Starnberg in Germany with a massive cantilevered roof that hovers over the outdoor spaces. Facing the morning sun, the house resides on a sloped lot with both mountain and water views.
A huge terrace is located just off the kitchen and living room with an elongated infinity pool just steps away. The levitating roof offers shade for outdoor relaxing, as well as reducing the amount of sun that enters through the floor-to-ceiling, sliding glass doors.
An outdoor eating area just off the kitchen is located beside a stone chimney.
White walls are paired with light maple floors and kitchen cabinets keeping the open space bright and airy.
The main living area was designed on the top floor to maximize the views.
An artichoke light from Poul Henningson hangs in the entryway to greet visitors.
