PROJECTS: Master Design Awards GOLD Whole House More Than $500,000 PHIL KEAN DESIGNS INC., WINTER PARK, FLA. PHILKEANDESIGNS.COM Located on a lakefront lot, the owner wanted to improve the 1980's home's flow, maximize the lake views and create large, comfortable living spaces to accommodate a growing family. Interior walls were removed and room placement adjusted. A second-floor addition includes a master suite with exercise room, office, private den and media room, and a balcony. Children's rooms, a guest room and family living areas are on the first floor. Space for a future elevator is incorporated in the foyer's stone column as a coat closet covered by a barn door. All lakeside rooms boast panoramic lake views. A spacious lanai with summer kitchen, outdoor dining area, a "firetainment" sitting area and retractable screens connect to the family room, dining room and kitchen via pocketing sliding glass panels. This outdoor area expands the home's living and entertaining area by 605 sq. ft. The home achieved LEED for Homes Gold certification, Energy Star certification, an EPA Indoor airPlus certification and HERS index of 63.
