This Austin house was built in 1962, designed by the legendary firm Fehr & Granger Architects. But the layout was choppy and the finishes outdated by the time the current homeowners purchased it. They sought help from architect David Webber and interior designer Jennifer Greer Hartman to update the main floor layout. Webber removed partitions to reveal the 80-foot-long living-dining-cooking area as well as the outside counterpart, a covered terrace. The homeowners asked for a blending of inside and out, which Webber was able to achieve with easy access to the outdoor living areas and pool via glass sliding doors along the entire back of the house.
Webber and Hartmann collaborated on the walnut wall in the entry–it features blackened steel plates and has an aesthetic that’s reminiscent of a very large piece of mid-century furniture.
Webber updated the original staircase with new steel plate treads. Lueders limestone flooring is underfoot. The walls are Sherwin-Williams’ Aesthetic White.
A Kyle Bunting rug anchors the sofa and chairs by Chai Ming Studios as well as the Blackman Cruz coffee table. The armoire is by DwellStudio; art by Christopher Cook hangs above the custom fireplace by the project’s general contractor Matt Risinger.
