Kevin Akey, of AZD Associates-Architects in
Birmingham, designed the 60-foot lap pool in
space below the master bedroom to accommodate
the owner's daily exercise routine. The lap pool
was built by Paddock Pools of West Bloomfield.
Architects, the owners requested a 60-
foot indoor lap pool. Akey deftly cre-
ated the pool out of the crawl space.
He also enlarged the master bedroom.
While the front of the home is
unassuming, boaters on the lake
have a breathtaking sight of two
modern wings of a three-level
home cascading down a 22-foot
drop to the lake.
Spectators and visitors agree with
Gaber's assessment — "You
couldn't ask for a better canvas."
A V-shaped window wall provides a dramatic
focal point in the foyer.
