FILLING IN

This new home, located in a historic district in downtown Austin, was designed by Tim Cuppett Architects to blend into the context of shade trees and bungalows.  Its simple gable form, covered porch, exposed rafter tails, and compact scale fit nicely among its neighbors and support the existing streetscape.

The shingled pitched roof and dormer windows are typical of houses in this in-town neighborhood.

Interiors reflect the personalities of the homeowners; who are art collectors, music connoisseurs, and rug enthusiasts. Textiles were selected to complement the art in each space.

Gallery white walls provide the perfect backdrop for bold art and contrasting stained and painted wood.

The spaces were planned for entertaining large parties that could easily flow from the interior to the exterior, or be cozy for two. The furnishings are comfortable and generously scaled.

The core of the house is set off with dark-stained wood.

The wood-clad casework extends into the kitchen.

The stairwell has the visual impact of a handsome piece of sculpture.

The upstairs master bedroom’s stained wood ceiling is a dramatic backdrop for the moon-like pendant.
