KEVIN ALTER HOUSE

Austin-based architecture firm AlterStudio worked with interior designer Claire Zinnecker to refresh an outdated house in Austin. A dynamic, open spatial sequence replaces an assortment of interior-oriented rooms and introduces multiple sources of light and view.

Modest windows were replaced with large expanses of glass and oversized sliding glass doors.

A collection of purpose-made elements were inserted into the open plan to define the daily rituals of the home and give form to individual spaces.

Interior walls were removed, a continuous white oak floor was inserted throughout, columns were minimized, and the precast planks were exposed and refinished, their rhythm and texture defining a vibrant interior overlooking a substantial back-yard.

Carefully rendered in white oak, mill-finished steel and Chinese marble, these furniture-scaled elements stop short of the articulated ceiling, provide opportunities for concealed up-lighting and add a sense of finesse to the vibrant interior landscape.
