Studio 3 Designs is in the latest issue of OBJEKT International, featuring the design and renovation of Casa dos Lagos in Orlando’s historic neighborhood College Park. OBJEKT©International is a premium publication for interior design and architecture with editorial features from around the world, published 4 times a year: in March, June, September, and December.

This unique home was designed by Edward Woodill with symmetry, clean lines, natural materials, and softer textiles and detailing in mind. The extensive use of custom furnishings and fixtures make it a matchless residential experience.

Sun-Drenched Interior Design

The feature, entitled Dancing Sunlight in Casa dos Lagos, highlights the ‘sun-drenched interior in which the light reflecting in the water adds an extra, dancing dimension.’Tall floor-to-ceiling windows and the predominance of white in the interior provide a light and airy ambiance, with sunlight pouring into several of the rooms during the day.

A Dramatic Overhaul in an Historic Community

Renowned immunologist Edwin DeJesus, owner of the home, wanted to transform his home into a unique and modern dwelling, a dramatic overhaul in an historic community. This radical makeover took two years of planning and three years of construction to update both the interior and exterior—a wait that was well worth it.

Woodill had a hand in the design of many of the eye-catching custom details, including the exceptional metalwork, a remarkable ceiling lamp and a mosaicked fireplace. His distinctive vision is also evident in the bamboo elements in the master bathroom and the panoramic view he created in the office.

Beautiful Yet Functional

DeJesus says that his home is now ‘a work of art, with a perfect balance of symmetry and unexpected, asymmetrical details.’ Studio 3 Designs was able to create a finished product that ‘has that splendid cultural characteristic, while retaining the functional aspect.’

Edward Woodill recently had the opportunity to share his thoughts on green design and green integration with the commercial design community in the January 2013 issue of Interiors & Sources. His contributed article, Green For Less, discusses how green integration can be a comparable alternative when LEED certification may not be financially feasible for small businesses.

Green Design & Integration as an Alternative to LEED

LEED certification has become the standard bearer for the commercial design, construction and operation of green buildings. Despite the rising popularity of building with the environment in mind, many small companies do not have the intensive resources that LEED certification requires.  This is when green design and green integration can come into play. Commercial design professionals can work with the contractor to keep costs down and keep the construction process on track, all while creating a sustainable space. Edward notes, “While green integration may not directly result in the coveted LEED certification, it can provide many of the same life-cycle cost savings at a lower upfront cost.”
