Silverock Cove Thunderhouse

Silverock Cove is a lakeside community of 125 homes located on Alabama’s scenic Lewis Smith Lake. The residence share ownership and use of the land and lake amenities, an approach borrowed from beachside community developments but unique to lakeside living. Anchoring the western half of the development, The Thunderhouse is a low-slung, pool side structure that hugs the ground to preserve the 360 degree views from the surrounding homes. Small, cozy fireside gatherings feel comfortable in the lounge space, and the steel window walls of the lounge open to allow larger gatherings to spill over onto the pool plaza. The mountain-modern structure is wrapped with a rain screen of reclaimed barn wood planks, while a true envelope of translucent panels sit just behind. Light from inside spills out between the barn wood planks, turning the Thunderhouse into a glowing shoreline beacon for boaters and residents alike.
