The Austin-based architectural team James D. LaRue Architects sent us photos of their beautiful work named House on the Hill. This is their description, focusing the main elements in an encompassing vision: “This contemporary gem exudes a curb appeal with an inviting entry, expansive glass, and an open floor plan. While nestled along a steep hillside, this home captures a beautiful hill country view while offering a private coziness to the homeowner.“Wood floors and ceiling beams compose a sophisticated atmosphere lightened up by natural light bouncing off white walls. Remember the impressive Westlake Drive House, part of the same architects’ portfolio? The sophistication of spaces seen in the bridges and breezeways is translated here by exceptional expanses of glass framing the architecture. Photographed by Coles Hairston, the beautiful single story residence is a strong inspiration source for open, bright residential spaces.
