Modern House by Mell Lawrence Architects
This 1981 multilevel house was remodeled into a spacious modernistic piece of art as Mell Lawrence Architects show their best turning it into a luxury home. It is situated on a sloping in a northwest neighborhood of Austin, Texas, and its terrain influenced the strategic gestures that made the update which simplified both the house’s function and appearance. Many existing walls were demolished in this 3,532 square feet house thus letting the outdoors blend with the interior.
Kitchen design with dining area
The newly created light-filled space dotted with extra-wide aluminum windows opened the kitchen to the dining room and living room. Everything was made with limited budget, but the result is more than fascinating.
House exterior design
The house exterior skin was modernized by horizontal galvanized corrugated metal siding while a den offers a walk-out to the yard divided into two levels.
House yard design
The yard is equipped with entertaining areas which are ideal for an alfresco family dinner as the building’s face was transformed due to a new door and windows openings.
The inexpensive rolling frosted plexi-glass doors provide flexibility while connecting and enlarging adjoining spaces when open. Curiosity is added with playful openings between rooms.
Outdoor living space
Living space outdoors was extended by the two level exterior areas adjacent to and on grade with the house. A freestanding art studio was added for a couple with three dogs which is positioned to further divide the upper terrace into two outdoor rooms. Upper and lower terraces are connected by large concrete stairs.
Living room design
The home includes five living areas, two dining areas, three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two half make this an ideal home for high-end living and entertaining. For more information you can visit Mell Lawrence Architects website.
