Hill Country Residence

Nestled into sloping topography, the design of this home allows privacy from the street while providing unique vistas throughout the house and to the surrounding hill country and downtown skyline. Layering rooms with each other as well as circulation galleries, insures seclusion while allowing stunning downtown views. The owners' goals of creating a home with a contemporary flow and finish while providing a warm setting for daily life was accomplished through mixing warm natural finishes such as stained wood with gray tones in concrete and local limestone. The home's program also hinged around using both passive and active green features. Sustainable elements include geothermal heating/cooling, rainwater harvesting, spray foam insulation, high efficiency glazing, recessing lower spaces into the hillside on the west side, and roof/overhang design to provide passive solar coverage of walls and windows. The resulting design is a sustainably balanced, visually pleasing home which reflects the lifestyle and needs of the clients.

Authentic Concrete Images
Looks like a power troweled floor that has been lightly polished or just sealed. Concrete in your living space needs to be densified to contain the dust. Concrete will dust naturally and densifier put down properly will prevent that. Polishing will also help contain that surface, as well as sealing. This floor was resin polished only once or twice to make it shine and I would also recommend a floor finish added once a year to protect your sealer and just keep it shiny.

My image was polished with 200 resins, densified with Lithium silicate, polished with 400 resins, 800 resins, penetrating sealer, burnished and then two coats of floor finish

What Houzz contributors are saying:

6. Go big with a glass backsplash. The trend for kitchen backslashes is to go taller and wider — as in this space. Glass in particular is great when you’re using a backsplash to create texture, as its smooth, slightly transparent surface complements both industrial and natural materials, infusing the space with feminine lightness.
