Modern Home Tour Austin 2015
I can't believe another year has slipped by and the modern home tour is upon us again. Tickets are on sale today for $30, or they can be purchased tomorrow for $40 at any house. While the lineup is as impressive as always there are a few that I am particularly excited about. Here are my top 4 picks in no particular order:
2202 Trail of the Madrones (also shown above) was designed by Sago International a firm headed up by Erik Gonzalez. I love all the stuff that Sago International does, but what really strikes me about this particular home is how quintessential International Style the home is. It's hard to look at that elevation and not see hints of Villa Savoy.
FAB Architecture shows us how to do East Austin infill right with this minimal but warm modern home. I love the material pallet that FAB uses that keeps the space looking clean and stark but not sterile. I've been meaning to get inside this house for a while now.
I've got to give a shout out to my friends over at North Arrow Studio for their Hyde Park modern farmhouse. They've done a brilliant job of thinking out of the box and packing this space full of surprising one off details like the porch with operable privacy screens. They are having an after party too, hopefully they won't mind that I invited you. :)
I love a good remodel. It requires a bit more creativity to work within the parameters of the existing house and transform it into something new and useful. Baldridge Architects has done some great work, so I'm excited to see how they transformed this 1950's home. I'm also on the lookout for some pool inspiration.
