Cortona KitchenContemporary Kitchen, Austin

This Westlake site posed several challenges that included managing a sloping lot and capturing the views of downtown Austin in specific locations on the lot, while staying within the height restrictions. The service and garages split in two, buffering the less private areas of the lot creating an inner courtyard. The ancillary rooms are organized around this court leading up to the entertaining areas. The main living areas serve as a transition to a private natural vegetative bluff on the North side. Breezeways and terraces connect the various outdoor living spaces feeding off the great room and dining, balancing natural light and summer breezes to the interior spaces. The private areas are located on the upper level, organized in an inverted “u”, maximizing the best views on the lot. The residence represents a programmatic collaboration of the clients’ needs and subdivision restrictions while engaging the unique features of the lot.

    As you say a 12' ceiling. Given than normal counter top height is 3', the upper most cabinets will be accessed with the aid of a stepladder. A most deceptive 12'
  • Fatima Salih
    I noticed in the living room the ceiling is a little higher, where they might actually be 12' ceilings, but in the kitchen they are coming down a bit to perhaps 10' ceilings.

    Thank you for your interest in our design. The ceiling height for this space is
    approximately 12 feet. I’m sorry, but I do not
    have the size of the dropped ceiling off hand at this time.
