PROJECT FEATURE: Austin hillside home with French architectural influence

This hillside home with French architectural influence is a project we have enjoyed designing over several continuous phases. Meant for entertaining with ease and enjoying stunning city views, we set out to pull people through, encouraging a fluid experience of the spaces collectively. This home has areas to be both contemplative and communal at the same time, including a beautifully textured space lovingly christened “The Retreat” post our design. Subtle references to legendary designer William Haines and further developed artistic intentions encouraged the growth of the homeowner’s art collection. 

I loved the openness and accessibility we created in this home. Color and pattern play give rich texturing without overwhelming the senses. Artistic touches such as hand-painted and custom designed vignettes throughout, ensure this homes uniqueness for the special family that lives there. With a European sensibility, this home now balances a refined style without overpowering the everyday experience.
