Spanish Oaks Residence Exterior contemporary-patio

Spanish Oaks Residence Exterior

This soft contemporary home was uniquely designed to evoke a coastal design feeling while maintaining a Hill Country style native to its environment. The final design resulted in a beautifully minimalistic, transparent, and inviting home. The light exterior stucco paired with geometric forms and contemporary details such as galvanized brackets, frameless glass and linear railings achieves the precise coastal contemporary look the clients desired. The open floor plan visually connects multiple rooms to each other, creating a seamless flow from the formal living, kitchen and family rooms and ties the upper floor to the lower. This transparent theme even begins at the front door and extends all the way through to the exterior porches and views beyond via large frameless glazing. The overall design is kept basic in form, allowing the architecture to shine through in the detailing.

Check out the website of (European contemporary design) They have a sectional sofa called Lazy that has a similar sleek design and that is extremely waterproof. The Little-L loungers would be a great compliment if you are looking for these as well. Good luck !

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Palmer and his team designed the home around the pool to create views from every part of the house. Patio areas on the sides of both levels create relaxing outdoor entertaining spaces away from the indoor living room. Clean lines, sleek white furnishings and pale blue accent pillows reflect the colors of the sky, pool tiles and views.Browse thousands of pool photos
