Skyline House by Dick Clark Architecture

Dick Clark Architecture have recently completed the Skyline House in Austin, Texas.

Description from Dick Clark Architecture

On a sloping site in West Lake Hills, this house slides in between mature Live Oaks to create a strong connection to nature and establish a unique sense of place.  The form of the house is long and linear, following the natural topography of the site and directing the perspective towards impressive views of downtown Austin.  A stretch of sliding glass doors pockets completely into the walls, creating a 40’ wide opening between the living area and outdoor spaces.

Stucco, stone and zinc create a natural and low-maintenance exterior, while floor-to-ceiling glass and deep overhangs create spaces that are both dramatic and comfortable.  From the grey porcelain tile floors to the extensive black walnut built-ins, the house was designed and detailed to be easygoing and flexible.  The result is a home that functions equally well for a large party as for a quiet moment taking in the sunrise.
