After more than 10 years of practicing architectural with many diverse housing projects in different scales, this is the first time NOWA has implemented an apartment project.
A contemporary addition to a 100-year-old house in Madrona including an expanded family room, comprehensive remodel to the kitchen living room and dining room as well as a series of new decks on multiple levels with amazing views of Lake Washington.
Klopf Architecture’s client, a family of four with young children, wanted to update their recently purchased home to meet their growing needs across generations.
Sited high in the hills, the original Via Media residence was designed with balcony/deck access in every single room, opening up to the nature and tranquility just minutes away from downtown Austin.
Located in a building built in the 60’s in the city of Sao Paulo, the Retrofit Project of this Apartment started from two basic premises, one requested by the client and the other imposed by the existing property.
A remodel of an existing 1938 bungalow in an historic central Austin neighborhood, the design aims to preserve the character of the context with a humble front facade, while unfolding and transforming in the back to accommodate small and large social gatherings.
