Gibson Taylor Thompson was commissioned to undertake an extensive renovation and addition to this classic mid-century lakeside estate, originally designed by Kentucky's famed modernist architect, Richard B. Isenhour in the late 1950's. The house is positioned to maximize the magnificent views of Lexington's reservoirs. Inspired by the rectilinear forms and geometry, changes in elevation, and expansive glass doors and windows, the addition seeks to blend the regulating lines of the existing house to the new rear glass windows and addition. The renovation better integrates the house with the natural landscape and topography. The renovation and addition brings the house up-to-date for modern living while maintaining the simple elegance of fine natural materials.
