Sitting atop Barton Creek, this home for a family of four offers expansive views of the downtown Austin skyline. The design centers around a landscaped courtyard with swimming pool, which directly connects the living and sleeping areas. Expansive roof planes appear to lightly hover over high windows, allowing natural light in even the most private areas of the home. White stucco walls create a clean and coherent contrast to the dark, ironspot brick, wood ceilings and steel accents. While kept reserved to the street, the home opens to the greenery of the courtyard with large glass windows for a discovered indoor outdoor family experience.
