Entry Description

Located in the heart of Austin, this private residence sits among the clouds. The client requested a condo that was glamorous; a fun place to escape from their permanent residence in Houston. This project was met with a few challenges, a couple of them were to design a space that felt modern without feeling cold and creating a floor plan that would work with the unique footprint of the condo. The concept was to create a unique and inviting experience with a nod to modern European design where the view of the city was the star. The floor plan was developed with careful consideration for each family member and their individual needs. On the top of the client’s “must-haves” list was intricate tile work. Sicis tile was selected and custom patterns and color blends were created to complement each space throughout the residence. Rugs were designed with custom colors from Black Sheep Unique to complement the tile and soften the bright white tile and dark wood floors. Luxurious Edelman leather was selected to wrap the over-sized sofas and dining chairs that gracefully sit on top, creating the next layer. Hand crafted furniture from Bradley and Koket were selected for their unique scale and rich metallic finishes. Hand strung crystal chandeliers illuminate each room. Venetian Plaster blends were created and applied to all the walls by In Your Space to create a feeling of warmth against the bright white and crisp blacks.
