Acquavilla looks like a home sprung out of a modern fairytale. Designed by Winn Wittman Architecture together with Jeremy Broussard and builder Gary Robinson, this amazing renovation of a mid 80’s wreck is a tribute to architecture ingenuity as well as to opulence and flamboyance. The project is located in Austin, Texas and was recently completed, even though there were many challenges along the way. According to the architects, the residence was developed in a way that reflects the whimsical personality of the owner. The pool- which seems to blend with the nearby lake- is probably this building’s most alluring feature. We also like the two garages which have a show-room appearance. The original facade is enriched by a custom-designed metal panel system with interesting leaf motives. This pattern can also be found inside the residence, applied to glass doors or windows. The interiors are highly modern and each room is invaded by light. There is a pleasant mix of color, light and shades which gives this home its unique atmosphere and contributes to its overall feminine look.
