Crafted by architect Stuart Sampley this gorgeous home welcomes you with a sunken living room that allows you to escape the midday Texas heat with a quick refreshing nap. The sunken space also offers ample privacy and gives the interior an air of luxury.
Due to the inherent narrow width of the home the architects needed to be extra careful regarding the optimum usage of space. Just the residence acquired a new two-story glass rear extension that opens up into the lovely backyard and gives the interior a sense of spaciousness.
Urban luxury is combined with a ‘holiday retreat ambiance’ as smart appliances and tech-savvy additions become an integral part of the living room and the kitchen. The stylish living room features plush seating in white and a multimedia wall in black while the kitchen and the dining space also embrace this sleek contemporary look.
An imaginative design and exemplary balance between wood glass and concrete give the home its unique ! While the penthouse level offers amazing views of the city skyline and the Highline park the glass addition brings the sights and sounds of the changing seasons indoors in an unabated fashion. Timeless decor like the Tulip table and chairs along with the iconic LEM Piston Bar Stools complete this chic home.
Large sliding glass doors smart windows and skylights usher in ample ventilation while a cool bedroom in white offers the perfect private sanctuary with framed views of the backyard. An outdoor lounge and beautiful views of the nearby lake make the stay here even more pleasurable.
Each room flows into the next in a seamless fashion and the use of black and white ensures that there is as little visual fragmentation as possible. A lovely living area a spacious dining space and a modern kitchen occupy the lower level while a compact staircase leads to the study bedroom and the en suite bath on the top floor.
Warm wooden accents are spread out in every room of the house and give the rooms a textural and visual contrast. Eclectic decor a neutral color scheme and glittering pendant light additions complete this revamped private residence located in a city that is rich in Spanish colonial history and architectural heritage.
