A closer look at the dining room reveals colorful, contemporary artwork. When set against crisp white backdrops, the canvases easily enliven the room and complement the space's clean lines.
Behind the island, rows of drawers keep kitchen utensils neat and organized. A minimalist light fixture hangs overhead, drawing subtle visual interest to the ceiling without competing with the views ahead.
The Apothecary includes a full-service retail pharmacy with products displayed on the steel, aluminum, and poplar wood super-graphic shelf that runs the full height and length of the glass storefront. The super-graphic combines the pharmacy's needs for clear and bold branding as well as ease of access to the products on display while allowing the daylight to filter through the entire space. The super-graphic manages direct southern light, adequately and naturally lighting the pharmacy interior while protecting sensitive items on the shelves. Materiality and form are carefully composed to create an uplifting and efficient workplace for daily pharmacy functions that are transparent to customers.
Composed of crisply-detailed, considered materials, surfaces and finishes, the home is a balance of sophistication and restraint. The two-story massing is designed to allow for a bold yet humble street presence, while each single-story wing extends through the site, forming intimate outdoor and indoor spaces. The upper story is clad in stucco, articulated as a floating white box, light in appearance and also acting as a veritable “tree house” for the children’s bedroom zone. The knots in the exposed portion of the wood add a desired texture and contrast to the clean and minimal massing of the white stucco.
Windows in various shapes and sizes let sunlight flood into this open, airy kitchen and dining room. A gray wood floor grounds the space and is a welcome note of contrast to the walls.
Autohaus, in Austin, TX, is a combination residence and car collectors’ garage that features compact living quarters, an open area for gatherings and automobile calibration/display. Shown here, an upstairs space looks down into the garage, which also features a large Ferrari portrait.
In the backyard, an infinity edge pool and hot tub that connect the facade of the modern house to its beautiful views of nature combine with an outdoor dining area to create the perfect, elegant entertaining space.
The glass storefront allows plenty of natural light into the space, while the pendant lighting helps to make the space bright and inviting. The use of poplar wood throughout the space makes it warmer, while the addition of metal throughout the store and the neutral, modern furniture complete the design.
Balanced shade, dappled sunlight, and tree canopy views are the basis of the Tree House design. The entry is on center with the lot’s primary Live Oak tree, and each interior space has a unique relationship to this central element.
The designers of this Austin home carefully employed line and shape to help draw residents and guests outdoors. Here, a long, rectangular dining table directs the eye to the backyard.
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
