Cortona Game Room contemporary basement
 

Cortona Game Room

This Westlake site posed several challenges that included managing a sloping lot and capturing the views of downtown Austin in specific locations on the lot, while staying within the height restrictions. The service and garages split in two, buffering the less private areas of the lot creating an inner courtyard. The ancillary rooms are organized around this court leading up to the entertaining areas. The main living areas serve as a transition to a private natural vegetative bluff on the North side. Breezeways and terraces connect the various outdoor living spaces feeding off the great room and dining, balancing natural light and summer breezes to the interior spaces. The private areas are located on the upper level, organized in an inverted “u”, maximizing the best views on the lot. The residence represents a programmatic collaboration of the clients’ needs and subdivision restrictions while engaging the unique features of the lot.

I have concluded that people in Austin have great taste! I have never been there but an old friend (who has passed) of mine's sister owns a restaurant called Canopy there. Anyway, do you know the manufacturer of the orange double drum light ? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shoshana Gosselin added this to Sectional, Meet Ottoman: Matchmaking Tips
Do you have a beige sectional you want to spice up? Add a patterned ottoman to create unique interest.
Ventana Construction LLC added this to How to Dig Down for Extra Living Space
How deep do you need to dig? Basements generally require foundation walls with footing drains and a ceiling that is at least a little more than the height of a standard door (about 7 feet). Many homes with existing basements have ceiling heights lower than this and may have areas where ductwork hanging below the joists makes the ceiling even lower. Digging down a few feet means removing dirt and concrete, making new concrete footings below the existing ones and pouring a new concrete slab floor. If you are making a new basement where there is only a crawl space, or if your existing foundation is not structurally adequate, it may require lifting your house while the new foundation walls and slab are poured. Even a few inches goes a long way toward making the space feel comfortable. If you can manage 8-foot ceilings, you can use surface-mount light fixtures instead of can lights.
