It’s probably not exactly what Buckminster Fuller had in mind when he first designed the geodesic dome, but this house in Massachusetts’ Berkshires mountains is a gorgeously modern ode to the designer’s iconic architectural form.
Interior designer Jess Cooney overhauled the domed lake house for a couple from Boston, transforming the dark wood-paneled interior into a light and airy abode. Cooney stripped the carpet from the floors and gave the vacation home modern touches like a sleek gas fireplace, a brand new kitchen, and bathrooms built around colorful tiles.
The heart of the house is the main floor, where a vaulted ceiling turns the home’s faceted roof and windows into a centerpiece. The first floor has an open layout for the kitchen, living room, and dining area; there’s also a guest bedroom tucked away for privacy. Up a spiral staircase, the lofted master bedroom has unobstructed views to the ground floor and triangular windows thanks to a clever railing that incorporates glass panels.
Below, take a closer look around, including a few photos of the home before the renovation.
