See inside an Austin home with modern yet ultra-inviting living spaces


This striking modern dwelling is designed by Hugh Jefferson Randolph Architects in collaboration with Risinger Homes, located in Austin, Texas. The long, rectangular lot this home resides on was inspiration for it’s basic geometry. This home was the result of a long design process that began as a house for the architect and his family, then evolved with the sale of the lot to a developer.

This residence consists of 4,525 square feet of living space, boasting three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Warm, modern, eco-friendly and luxurious, this home proves that not all modern homes are cold and geometric. Sweeping interior views and living spaces bathed in natural light.

Above: The entry to this house is highlighted by the terraced steps and porch, taking advantage of the large Spanish Oak tree on the site.


The site’s slope and alley gave inspiration to the location of the half-basement garage and multi-level organization. The desire to open up to a large Oak tree and view on the west side gave rise to the large overhang the windows. This home is a 5 Star Austin Energy rated house.

Above: The window and door manufacturer is Gherkin for the operable units and a local storefront supplier, (Marble Falls Storefront) for the rest. Wood used on the soffit is Ipe. The roof is a slightly sloped, galvanized metal roof with a paint grip finish.


Above: The house numbers can be purchased from Atlas Homewares. They come in a variety of finishes and can be mounted with or without the extension tubes. Wall sconce is the Troy Lighting Contemporary / Modern Two Light 18.25″ Tall Incandescent Wall Sconce from the Simpatico Conundrum Collection.


What We Love: This spectacular Austin home showcases a warm display of modern yet welcoming living spaces. The project team did a fabulous job of mixing eye-catching materials and finishes with luxurious furnishings and accessories. We are especially loving the illuminated terraced steps and porch that leads up to this home, it really adds to the overall appeal of the exterior facade.

i agree with the “what we love” assessment. in addition, i like how the kitchen was set in an alcove with a high counter to partition the kitchen from the rest of the living room space. i also like the interior stairway railing. the “fineline” flooring choice is definitely an acquired taste. the “blackface” rendering of a primate in the artwork located outside of the master suite is DEFINITELY OFFENSIVE.
