In this thoroughly modern home by Austin firm Tim Brown Architecture, classic Victorian forms and scale blend seamlessly with contemporary elements to orchestrate an eminently livable inside-to-outside experience for the family it was specifically designed around. Featured on the 2017 edition of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Austin Homes Tour, multiple banks of wide-opening folding and sliding glass doors open the great room, master bedroom, and study to spacious outdoor living areas. Upstairs, each of the kid-oriented bedrooms include ladder access to loft-space hideaways, while a spiral slide encourages whimsical trips back down to the main living areas.
In our walk-through video produced during the October 28-29 tour weekend, you can get a feel for how well this design works.
