Westlake ResidenceContemporary Bedroom, Austin
Nestled between multiple stands of Live Oak trees, the Westlake Residence is a contemporary Texas Hill Country home. The house is designed to accommodate the entire family, yet flexible in its design to be able to scale down into living only in 2,200 square feet when the children leave in several years. The home includes many state-of-the-art green features and multiple flex spaces capable of hosting large gatherings or small, intimate groups. The flow and design of the home provides for privacy from surrounding properties and streets, as well as to focus all of the entertaining to the center of the home. Finished in late 2006, the home features Icynene insulation, cork floors and thermal chimneys to exit warm air in the expansive family room.

Floating panels. In a master bedroom or guesthouse, a room divider can split a large space into a sleeping area and a lounging area. These floating panels create a simple and effective privacy wall, secured by wire at the ceiling and floor. Silver strips make it bright, and since it is only three-quarters of the height of the wall, light and space still flood the room.And on the other side of the partition?
