On a large private lot at the foothills of the Hill Country, this client wanted their house to be ingrained in nature, rather than up on the hill towards the view; what results is a beautiful play fashioned amongst landscape and building – with each one stealing the spotlight from each other around every bend. To achieve greater privacy and to use the superior natural quality of it’s surroundings, we have nestled the house deep into the lot and worked integrally with the Landscape Architect to create a balance in the environmental setting and positioning.

The design solution involves a plan orientation that is unorthodox. The rear of house, with rooms configured around the swimming pool and courtyard terrace, is oriented towards the access road – while the entry to the house is situated towards the rear of property. A wonderfully challenging Hill Country Modern House project that utilizes all aspects of the design process to make use of the entire lot in the best possible way: functionally, effectively and naturally.
