Bright colors, classic design and contemporary architecture were the client’s expectations of Villa M, implemented by Brian Dillard Architecture and located in Austin, Texas. According to the official project description,”the house is organized around a central pool and garden area that is shared by the main house and pool house. Both enjoy large, multi-slide doors which open the spaces completely to the pool during nicer months.  The red stucco volumes are inspired by the vernacular stucco of Nice, France where the owner is from.  The parterre garden, tiled pool, and fountain along a central axis are also reminiscent of French influences. Strong design elements including the bright colors and general form of the house are softened by the use of classic, warm materials such as white oak wood paneling and terrazzo floors“.
