Photos by Twist ToursHouse at a GlanceWho lives here: Architect Ed Hughey and graphic designer Valerie JayneLocation: Austin, TexasSize: 1,100 square feet (102 square meters); two bedrooms plus office, one bathroomTo celebrate their engagement, architect Ed Hughey and graphic designer Valerie Jayne took a trip to Japan and came back inspired to design the home they would share. They were drawn to the minimalist material and color palettes they saw in Japanese buildings and the simplified lifestyle that works well in small spaces there. When they returned, a bungalow came up for sale in the Holly neighborhood of Austin, Texas, in an ideal spot only about a half-mile from downtown and a walkable mile from Hughey’s office. They wrote a heartfelt letter to the owner, saying that they were going to live in the home rather than build a giant spec house to sell and that they hoped to honor the home’s style and scale. Their offer beat out a slew of others. Although Hughey and Jayne, who are now married, expected to do some major remodeling, they realized during demolition that the work was going to be more extensive than they had thought. They discovered fire damage in some walls that required lumber to be replaced, and they also wound up replacing the electric, plumbing and HVAC systems. In addition, they opened up the floor plan, reconfigured the layout and added an office.Find the right front door for your home in the Houzz Shop
