Bowman Outdoor Living

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.

- Since Cornerstone hasn't replied yet, I'm going to venture that the finish material on the outdoor kitchen cabinet enclosure and the upper wall is a stucco finish, since I don't see any seams.

I would think that grease and steam rising from the grill could definitely cause issues with the TV.

Are you able to buy directly from Mondecasa's website, or do you have to buy at a retailer? Can you give me any additional information about the dining set pictured here?

Placing ceiling fans 16 feet apart on the porch allows for maximum air movement and cooling potential.
