North Austin Renovation & Addition (NXNW)

Located a stone’s throw from the Arboretum in Northwest Austin, this custom home transformation embraces a modern farmhouse aesthetic balanced with simple clean lines and a strong connection to the outdoors. Originally a single story ranch style home, the design reconfigured interior spaces and re-purposed the existing attic for a second floor addition — all within the existing footprint.
 
The second floor addition revealed an opportunity to showcase the sectional quality of the design.  North facing clerestory windows and a vaulted high profile ceiling, paint both floors with natural light and accentuate a straight-run staircase with custom metal railings.  Strategic placement of windows, at the second floor, strengthens the interior connection to the outdoors amidst mature heritage trees.
 
Subtle custom features and finishes reflect the effective collaboration between client, architect, contractor, and craftsman for the duration of the project.
