Zilker Residence

This new 4 bedroom 3 bath home has all of the modern features: large walls of glass, reveals, a low-slope roof with interior roof drains and more. This hilltop 2,822 SQ FT residence with city views is proof that modern architecture doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort. Every room in the house has a view of a tree or the skyline.

The desire to express precision, and not cover things up with trim & textured paint surfaces, requires some exacting workmanship and precise use of materials. The open living room-dining room-kitchen area is encouraging as well as accommodating for a small family or entertaining. The living portion is sunken so even though it is in the same room as the dining area and kitchen, it feels like a separate space. Floor-to-ceiling windows & doors dematerializes the rooms throughout the home.

Consistency within the detail is the hallmark of any good modern house. The threads of the stairwell are made from the same Douglas Fir beams that support the roof. The 520 SQ FT Deck covered in Brazillian Garapa Wood features a television in a custom made cabinet, a gas fireplace and well placed planter wall blocks the view of the neighbors roof and draws attention to the city view in the distance.
