It is the lavish public area which becomes the heart of the house while the more private bedrooms are carefully hidden away. Sliding glass doors an outdoor sunken lounge with roaring fire pit and an infinity pool complete the backyard; an area that is bound to see more traffic as the sun goes down.
A rough terrain and undulating landscape do not stop the architects from shaping a dramatic vacation home that the whole family can enjoy. An open living area along with kitchen and dining are set at the rear of the property and towards the glass façade while the front of the house holds the more private bedrooms. A dream escape in every sense of the word!
Life here seems both snug and relaxing with modern comforts being cleverly intertwined with classic aesthetics. An open double-height living area sits at the heart of the home with a large dining area and kitchen next to it.
That impact is only accentuated when you use two pitched roofs as this gorgeous contemporary residence in Austin does! Designed by Dick Clark + Associates along with Vinson Radke Homes the exquisite home has a street façade that borrows from the more classic houses in the neighborhood even while standing out visually!
Reinforced concrete structural steel and a prefabricated system of insulated panels ensure that the temperature inside is carefully controlled even as the clerestory windows usher in a flood of natural light.
Different ‘concrete blocks’ across three floors form the basic core of this multi-generational family house even as terrazzo brings a touch of vintage Vietnamese charm to this contemporary residence.
