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!
Each volume of the house slowly and effortlessly flows into the covered terrace next to it as the green spaces bridge the kitchen and dining with the living area. Large glass domes cover each of the terraces and keep out the cold wind even as one enjoys warmth and sunshine without having to venture outdoors.
Natural goodness becomes a part of life at CSF House with the open living space embracing both the green spaces. It is the upper levels that contain the kids’ rooms along with the master bedroom and other private areas.
A balcony along with staircase connects the house with the rear patio while it is still the parlor level with kitchen dining and other public spaces that ends up stealing the spotlight!
A glass façade is the real show stopper at this modern retreat as it opens up the interior completely to the view outside. You are surrounded by nature completely and it is changing sunlight through the day and the passage of seasons that provide a dynamic colorful and hypnotic backdrop that takes you back into nature’s lap.
The gable roof is a classic that has been eternally linked with the image of a dream family home. It is one of the first things that kids sketch in their art classes and even in a modern setting a gable roof instantly grabs your attention.
