City View Residence in Texas: Art, Sustainability and Quality Design

City View Residence in Texas: Art, Sustainability and Quality Design

Dick Clark Architecture is a company with a massive design portfolio  from Texas, USA.  In today’s post, we would like to present the City View Residence in Austin, a project which initially left us speechless. At the first glance, the element that stands out is grandeur: a home of impressive size, with an eye-catching outdoor pool. But as one begins to check out its subtle design attributes, its impressive proportions start to lose ground. The building is a blend of modern design, sustainable elements and artistic decorations which contribute to a well defined personality.

Here is more information from the architects: “Inspired by the clients’ desire to live in a house that reflects their values and lifestyle, the house takes an architecturally minimal approach with simple massing, an understated material palette, and large expanses of glass. Configured for entertainment, the glass box living area, along with large sliding doors from the dining and pool room invite guests outside onto the pool deck to take in the spectacular view of the Austin skyline. We tried our best to have as little impact on the environment as well. The house has a 3kw solar panel system, instant hot water heaters, bio foam insulation, rain water collection that irrigates a good portion of the lot, very efficient mechanical systems, and low e glass.”
