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.

Was this new construction or could one add concrete flooring to an existing subfloor in an older house?

Its the way which they cut the tree to make wood. Plain sawn makes itkinda more rustic by showing alot of grain.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Warm Up to Wood for an Eye-Catching Wall
Floated. This idea reminds me of a warm, rustic art installation all by itself. Naturally, it's the perfect place for a great piece of art and a great idea for defining spaces in an open floor plan.
