We’re ending this week with one of my favorite mid century homes in Austin. It was originally designed by Barton Riley for himself, and the current owner has done some very thoughtful updates to it in their four plus year ownership. You can see some before photos here.

I’m absolutely in love with this 1960 mid century modern home just off of Balcones. It’s got everything a quintessential mid-century home should have, post and beam construction, cork, terrazzo, and oodles of clerestory windows. The indoor pool is a bit quirky but I’m not mad at it at all.

This one is a special one. It was designed by David Graeber (of LBJ library fame amongst others) as his personal home. He lovingly called it the Japanese House for obvious reasons. The Japanese aesthetic played a huge roll in American modernism in the post war years, and it’s great to see such a clean example of it here in Austin.

I hate to be that guy, but man the furniture in this one is killing my vibe. This one says it’s a new build in 2014 but I believe I can still see the bones of the original 1957 home in there somewhere. Furniture aside, this is a great looking project by Thomas Tornbjerg, and quite a departure from the rest of his body of work.
