It is the second floor that houses the entrance of this fabulous home with a smart walkway leading to a cubic volume that is draped entirely in Brazilian teak. A large Cor-ten steel door provides visual and textural contrast to the curious entrance and leads into the foyer.
It is the creative folks from DADA & Partners that came up with a design that borrows from the aesthetics of a ‘gallery’ even while offering ample privacy and a smart interaction between the different public zones.
Steel-gray granite white stucco timber slats and wooden battens shape the distinct façade of this Indian home along with the generous use of glass. Completely opening up to the greenery that surrounds it the overall form of the house mimics that of a multilevel gallery.
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.
Once you step inside this elegant home the image of the dark stained cedar exterior is quickly replaced by a breezy living space clad in neutral hues and an open living area that is filled with ample natural light.
Nothing transforms an interior completely like the right lighting. It could be a flood of natural light on some occasions and a carefully planned and executed combination of recessed and pendant lighting on others.
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.
