Spanish Oaks Residence Living

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.

You can get something similar at almost any place that sells dog beds. Costco had a little couch for dogs a few months ago. You might also check PetSmart and other pet retailers.

Thank you for the info. It seems that they've discontinued that beautifully designed model. All of the others look less architectural / structured. I searched the name and found other references to it but no active sources. Such a shame.

Is it difficult to keep interior concrete floors from cracking in a climate where we get hard freezing?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Katya Popova added this to A Romp Through Pet-Friendly Materials
Another great floor material for puppy training? Natural stone — though be aware that porous materials, such as marble, can stain. So choose wisely what kind of stone you install.
The clients wanted an open, light feeling throughout the home and a design that maximized the views of the subdivision's lush rolling hills and surrounding golf course. The home has an abundance of two of the most important elements of coastal design style: natural light and plenty of white, which spread and boost sunlight. But repeated lines, abundant angles and handpicked abstract, geometric art drive the point home: The house is unapologetically contemporary in its architectural bones.
