Barton Boulevard Residence

The Barton Blvd Residence bridges past and present with simple volumes and a restrained material palette. At the street the house, with its angled roof, walnut-clad canopy, and one-story façade, takes cues from the mid century modern houses in its neighborhood. There, oriented to the north and perched above the Umlauf Sculpture Garden with views of Zilker Park, the shape of the house asserts itself. Exposed to the elements, the steel will evolve and adapt to its environment over time.

Inside, form and function collide, as uncomplicated living, dining, and kitchen areas are bathed in natural light from clerestory windows on the south side. Tethered to the ceiling with four, slim metal columns, a sculpted, walnut-and steel-clad divider separates the hallway and private spaces from the public area.
