Sometime in the mid 1980's, I did flowers for a wedding in this home of a local businessman. The setting was lovely, and the home was so unusual for this area that I photographed it. Top: the approach to the house, which is almost totally surrounded by lakes.
There are few examples of ultra-modern architecture here in this area. We are prone to have traditional or transitional homes and Craftsman-style cottages. This is rather austere in appearance for Raleigh, except for the size.
The wedding was in early May, and I remember well going into that cold, cold pool to anchor a float which was covered in flowers. Yikes.
This was the first time I had seen a "swim-up" bar anywhere other than a resort. For the wedding reception, the round bar was covered with flooring and the cake sat under that gazebo on a round table. It was a unique setting for the huge five tier cake, large enough to feed 500 people. They had plenty left over, since only about 250 attended the wedding.

What do you think of post-modern architecture? Could you live in a house like this? How would you furnish it?
