E. 8th Street House modern-exterior
 

E. 8th Street House

Designed as gallery, studio, and residence for an artist, this house takes inspiration from the owner’s love of cubist art. The program includes an upper level studio with ample north light, access to outdoor decks to the north and
south, which offer panoramic views of East Austin. A gallery is housed on the main floor. A cool, monochromatic palette and spare aesthetic defines interior and exterior, schewing, at the owner’s request, any warming elements to provide a neutral backdrop for her art collection. Thus, finishes were selected to recede as well as for their longevity and low life scycle costs. Stair rails are steel, floors are sealed concrete and the base trim clear aluminum. Where walls are not exposed CMU, they are painted white. By design, the fireplace provides a singular source of warmth, the gas flame emanating from a bed of crushed glass, surrounded on three sides by a polished concrete hearth.

For structural reasons the blocks are filled solid with concrete. The block walls actually are mostly interior (the central spine of the building is block), so they don’t make up a large percentage of the exterior, which is principally stick framed (and well insulated). Thanks for your question.

Thanks for the input. Who makes a shingle like this? I've seen this used on the exterior of "Room and Board's" Costa Mesa, CA store.
