The Cornerstone Architecture has successfully designed the Cat Mountain Residence in Austin, Texas, USA. The view offered by the back of the home is a raw landscape that is redefined and refined when entering the house’s interior with accents of stones and beams of the exposed ceiling. The final design of the house was conceived as a work of remodel and addition. The iteration of the final design is a unique multifaceted look. As much of the old work was to be preserved.
Although when considering the structural needs and requirements, an extensive tear down was needed, the clients insisted on having the old house as it was. The remodel design was to keep intact and essentially recreate as much of the already existing architectural work as possible. The overall finalized design for the floor plan was centered on maximizing what view possibly. Extensive glazing on windows were used and placed carefully to enhance the view by effortless framing.
The Cat Mountain Residence welcomes the outdoor inside. Both the living and the views are captured from multiple areas and used to visually connect the interior areas of the inner court. The clients, one of them was especially of residential interiors, visualized the house to sport a style of transition by complementing contemporary and clean elements with a sensible touch of antique charm all around the house. The possibility and view of and from the house seem to be endless.
Materials that allowed energy efficiency as well as reclaimed architectural elements were put in use to seamlessly integrate as an effort to add sustainability of the transitional design of the Cat Mountain Residence. The Cornerstone Architecture collaborated with the clients in achieving clean, modern, and sophisticated spaces with rustic elements spread across the house.
