The Wimberley House offers 5,000 square feet of residential space for its inhabitants to enjoy, alongside outdoor facilities like a fascinating at dusk swimming pool and a breathtaking panoramic views of the surroundings from the rooftop. Created by Dallas-based design studio Cunningham Architects, this magnificent contemporary home is located in Wimberley, a small town in Hays County, Texas – hence the name.

Capturing views from atop a hillside, the residence is described by its creators: An “L” plan effectively separates the bedroom wing from the more public kitchen/living/dining room wing. As such, the house essentially is two discrete boxes, one of glass, and the other of stained cement fiber board, indicative of their respective functions. The roof deck is capable of hosting large family gatherings, while affording expansive views of the surrounding area. It also acts as a rain water harvesting surface for the on-site collection system. As an exercise in sustainable building, the house utilizes energy efficient construction techniques as well as local resources and building materials“. All in all, this house offers comfort and excellent views. What would be your “excuse” to live here?
