From the architect: “A balance of natural light, simple materials, and flows are integrated with controlled views and atmospheric variation. This Central Austin house was remodeled in the spirit of the original Midcentury Modern house, with an open plan, honest natural materials, and a direct connection to nature.”
From the cabinetry design studio: “Our client’s Eichler home needed a kitchen overhaul, so she enlisted our help. [They] have lived in this home for a number of years, and one of the most loved elements of their home is the warm, golden glow created by the home’s wood tones. In building her new cabinetry, we were happy to help our client retain the look of her original Eichler cabinetry, yet with increased functionality and use of space—an approach to renovation we can truly appreciate.”
From the architect: “This midcentury modern-inspired jewel-box is just over 2,200 square feet. The quaint footprint features Douglas-fir vaulted wood ceilings and white oak floors throughout. An elevated pier and beam foundation allows for under floor HVAC distribution. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the house with natural light and open up to views of the entry court and entertainment deck. Previously in the 100-year floodplain, the house and rear cantilevered-deck now sit above a creek that runs along the backside of the property.”
