Waterside retreat overlooking Lake Austin gets a tranquil transformation

Furman + Keil Architects were responsible for the contemporary renovation of a 1980’s-built house located on a narrow peninsula on picturesque Lake Austin, Texas. The architects worked within the constraints of the existing 5,890-square-foot footprint, transforming the home from a series of walled rooms into an open layout. The entry courtyard was re-configured, enabling guests to penetrate deeper into the property, enhancing the entry transition.

New panoramic windows were integrated into the structure, allowing the homeowners to take advantage of their natural surroundings. Expansive sliding doors connects the living room with a newly constructed, screened-in porch, engaging views of the lake beyond. Overcoming the challenges of the property as well as the geometries of the existing floor plan led to an unexpected design, which maximizes the spectacular Lake Austin landscape.

What We Love: The redesign of this Lake Austin property helps to dramatically open this house to the surrounding lake. The transformation of this home went from clunky and cluttered to contemporary and clean-lined, creating a breathtaking living environment. A beautiful open plan where all interior walls were removed from the main living spaces demonstrates clever configuration by the architects. Spaces have been discretely delineated from one another through a series of free-standing cabinets that do not touch the ceiling. This helps keep the interiors feeling light and airy… Readers, what do you think of this lakeside abode, would it be your idea of a dream retreat?

Note: In case you missed it, have a look at another magnificent home tour that we have featured here on One Kindesign from the portfolio of Furman + Keil Architects: Breathtaking ranch house in the Texas Hill Country.
