Spanish Oaks Residence Exterior contemporary-pool

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.

Would you please share the material of the pool coping? I would also love to see a basic floorplan.

Here are the laminars. They could easily be aimed to shoot over the pool since they can go 12-15'. You can also light them up with fiber optics (like we have planned in) and can change them different colors. Wild.
