Fabulous artists home with intriguing design details

The Frick Residence is the home of artist Laurie Frick, designed by design-build firm KRDB located in Austin, Texas. The program requirement of the client was for a 1,600 square foot one-bedroom, two-bathroom house complete with a 700 square foot studio office on an infill lot in Barton Heights. The previous home was moved off the site, leaving a constricted buildable area located between a Diadora Cypress at the street and a magnificent Live Oak and swimming pool to the rear.

Here is a project description from the architects, “based on programmatic adjacencies the design is comprised of a series of 16″ structural steel bays wrapped with a metal-clad SIP cowl. Within the cowl, the home is programmatically volumized with tiger-wood and glazing while the studio is defined by integral color stucco. The main entry is activated with a subtle push into a generous hallway that doubles as gallery for the client’s art collection. Ambient light in the studio and living room is provided by a series of large north facing monitors while the more private master suite is volumized in maple millwork.”
