Located in the heart of Austin Texas and conceptualized by James D. LaRue Architects the is a warm and inviting residence that charms you with its obvious cheerful appeal. The owners of the home placed emphasis on a design that has seamless connectivity with the outdoors.
Defined with sophistication and flair by Hyla Architects the residence wows you with interiors that are as good as any. A lavish pool on the inside and a dramatic spiral staircase steal the show with their impressive design. Luxurious and exclusive the structure brings together ergonomics with elegant semi-minimalist design.
And when everything inside is beautifully decorated the outdoors is simply a mirror of the inhabitant’s care for both interior and exterior appeal. This balance between the beauty of interior spaces and an outdoor zone where man-made and natural colors meet is unequaled.
Indulging in a colorful and relaxing environment allows you to explore the beauty of our diverse world. So many nuances that go through continuous changes as the light diminishes or increases.
Contemporary features of the home were enhanced further by adding a stunning floating staircase with a glass railing. Interesting art work on the walls and the iconic Eames Lounger complete the transformation of House 1005 with style and sophistication!
The long way to becoming the dream home for Sarah and Kimo Bertram started on in Sausalito where the house-boat has been envisioned by the creative minds from Robert Nebolon Architects together with general contractor Bart Elmer. The duo came up with the idea of nesting the structure in a boxlike concrete barge that not only protects it from the marine climate but also provides keel-like stability — a much needed feature on water.
An abundance of colors can also balance the cold feeling of materials used to create the living spaces. For example colorful glass vases accentuated by expressive paintings cut through the cold atmosphere buried in the steel and glass staircase thus lifting the floating staircase to new levels of expression.
