Wood steel concrete and glass shape both the exterior and the interior of the house with the bay windows making a big difference to its overall form. With concrete and custom wooden shelves also making a big impact in the kitchen there is plenty of contrast to be found all around – both in terms of style and texture!
Despite its ultra-modern appeal there is no lack of contrast both in terms of geometry and texture inside the home with stylish wooden panels in the dining room and the home office bringing the walls and the ceiling alive.
Transforming the seemingly boring house into a contemporary masterpiece that enthralls with unabated views of the majestic Lake Austin and the rolling hills that surround it its revamped design leaves you simply awestruck.
But none of these proved to be a major hindrance as the creative folk from LDa Architecture & Interiors conjured and created this modern masterpiece that uses the sloped site to its advantage! The three-level interior is both spacious and serene with clean crisp design and a neutral color palette holding sway.
The most impressive and distinct feature of this luxurious residence is undoubtedly its front-to-back two-story entrance foyer and stairway. If the sheer grandeur of the entry room along with the playfulness of the pivoting wood door make the entrance more special then it is a series of sliding glass doors that bring in natural light and transform the interior into a cheerful setting. A series of terraces and walkways further strengthens this bond between the interior and the outdoors as the transition from the living room to the outdoor hangout is almost seamless.
It is the landscape the views on offer and the neighborhood that often define the silhouette of the house and the balance between privacy and ‘openness’ when it comes to design. Nestled in Kibbutz Yehiam Israel tends to veer more towards the latter with its unique design that blurs the conventional boundaries between the interior and the world outside.
Floor-to-ceiling glass windows open the living and dining area to the outdoors while the central room separates the wing with dining space kitchen kids’ bedrooms and breakfast zone from the zone that contains the master suite home gym and office.
