Lutz Residence Combines Modern Architecture and Lush Landscaping

This custom Lutz, FL home was designed by TOTeMS Architecture.

It’s on a large lake and near wetlands, which gives it the feel of a tropical oasis.  The house itself contains many large expanses of glass, allowing residents to fully experience the beautiful natural setting, even when inside.

The exterior of the house includes cypress lap siding inspired by local cypress trees and a roof made of anodized stainless steel shingles.  The cypress theme carries into the interior of the home with cypress beams.

The U-shape of the home allows for 6,000 sq. ft. of living without removing any of the significant trees that were on the lot.  And the landscaping is pristine, like something straight out of a magazine.

Here are some of my favorite photos of the house and gardens:
