Bowman Entry

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.

These are stained concrete floors, not cork flooring. Sorry!

I love the stain. The local web examples I've been viewing look redish (TX). This one appears to be a black/brown color. Do you remember the color of the stain? Thanks for taking the time to explain concrete flooring.

flooring - Please tell me how to install concrete in some areas and wood in others and have them all the same height. How is that done in this house?

Ok I am in a serious dilemma and basically losing my mind..lol... I thought long and hard about what floor is best for the house but o.m.g. why is it so hard to decide? I want the overlay stained concrete and even found someone to do it for 5 bux a sq ft. I truly feel this is what works best for all the reasons you mentioned. Ok the problem is that my house is not a beach house or a loft or a mansion in L.A. or some architectural masterpiece. It is simply a track house near Temecula and it has a nice pool with gives it that modern open concept indoor outdoor feel. So do I choose a tile or wood or cork flooring in a very light color that somehow can give me this feeling . So few products come in shades similar to stained concrete and that ones that do are expense for me.Or do I choose a black wood floor since no other color seems to match all the elements in the house yet this floor may make the hallway seem smaller and the house seem darker. If it were not for people telling me that concrete is not seen in homes around here and does not fit the architecture of the house and that wood is a better investment than I would have had it done a week ago. I also just saw a program where they had radiant heat installed under the concrete. As a designer and one who obviously works with concrete and you plz take a look at my pictures on the discussion forum and tell me what color floor and type of floor you would choose if this was your project? Thank you so much

Wall Material - What material is used for the walls? I'm new to home construction and I am planning to build a house within the next few years and I would like walls that are strong and easy to hang pictures and etc. THe walls in my current home are very hard to hang things on cause it breaks away at the nail or screw.

From the photo I would guess steel or Architectural Bronze. We have done similar doors. IN this case we used Bronze with frosted glass
