At night, this modern beach house practically glows from within, casting a warm glow on the sand. Curtains extending from wall to wall can be tucked away to enjoy the moonlit views or drawn for privacy.
At night, the farmhouse seems to float above its lawn with windows lighting a warm welcome to residents and visitors. The exterior is made from board and batten siding and locally-sourced stone veneer.
When the natural light of day is gone, this beautiful Cypress home becomes the light in the darkness. Just as the large windows allow in plenty of natural light to enter the space during the day, the same windows make the home seem to glow at night.
This amazing home in Austin is a perfect showcase for imaginative architecture. Instead of doing the usual—letting the house fill the 50 by 150-foot single-family lot—the architects designed the residence to stretch along the length of the land. This allowed for a mix of different outdoor spaces that could be natural extensions off of individual rooms.
The homeowners wanted to have a water feature that would collect rain water from the large horizontal roof and have it cascade around the house when it rains. By recirculating the water, the designers made the feature active year round.
