This eclectic Austin, TX home was redesigned for a pair of relocated former-New Yorkers. The project was imbued with careful reconsiderations of detailing throughout, from finely crafted wood millwork defining the entryway with sculptural cabinetry, to the living room strategically refreshed with ceiling uplighting and a minimal, double-sided fireplace whose rear side faces into the main bedroom. Meanwhile, a restrained material palette and concrete flooring create a calm, resonant energy throughout the main public spaces. The kitchen – the nexus of the residence – is clad in warm walnut, featuring marble countertops and backsplash with maximum character in the veining.

The rear of the home has been added onto in order to expand the residence with a flexible office-workout room atop the roof of the existing structure; and proactive provisions are built in to accommodate further additions to the home. Reconfiguring the main bathroom and closet allowed for the inclusion of a sunken soaking tub with even more corner-window lake views, in complement to the adjacent large shower in an overall spa-like space. Altogether, PNG House is designed with deference to minimalism, and to take full advantage of the impressive built-in views.
