Bowman Residence Kitchen

The driving impetus for this Tarrytown residence was centered around creating a green and sustainable home. The owner-Architect collaboration was unique for this project in that the client was also the builder with a keen desire to incorporate LEED-centric principles to the design process. The original home on the lot was deconstructed piece by piece, with 95% of the materials either reused or reclaimed. The home is designed around the existing trees with the challenge of expanding the views, yet creating privacy from the street. The plan pivots around a central open living core that opens to the more private south corner of the lot. The glazing is maximized but restrained to control heat gain. The residence incorporates numerous features like a 5,000-gallon rainwater collection system, shading features, energy-efficient systems, spray-foam insulation and a material palette that helped the project achieve a five-star rating with the Austin Energy Green Building program.

floor - why was wood used in the bathroom and concrete in the kitchen? I would think that the concrete would be used in all the wet areas?

The flooring in the master bath is not wood, it's silver travertine.

yes sorry let me ask that again. what I meant was why was travertine or any tile needed in the bathroom since the concrete floor shown in the kitchen could have been extended thru the house or perhaps the bath was on a different floor and I am picturing it to be on the same level as the kitchen. Was this a concrete overlay and if so how do you put in travertine or wood in other rooms and make all the heights match?thx
