Amazing upside down house showcases inviting views in Texas


Cornerstone Architects created this upside down house for family living and entertain, located along the golf course in Barton Creek, Travis County, Texas. This contemporary home sits on a sloping lot that incorporates a large sport court in the backyard. The entry opens up to a glass wall offering a view and direct access to the backyard for guests.

The lower level encompasses a sport court, viewing cabana, separate exercise room, media and game room, two boys’ bedrooms, a separate bunk room and a family covered porch for ping pong, a storage closet for sports equipment and an area for watching sports on TV.

Project Team: Architect: Cornerstone Architects | Builder: Butterfield Custom Homes | Interiors: Butter Lutz Interiors


The main level features a large covered outdoor living and dining area, while the main living area is completely open to the dining and kitchen areas.


What We Love: This upside down house offers its inhabitants a fabulous family home with comfortable spaces for gathering and entertaining. The interiors are characterized by sun-drenched living spaces courtesy of large windows framing views of this home’s lovely surroundings. We are especially loving the incredible kitchen, with a large island and plenty of space for cooking and casual dining.

Note: Have a look at a couple of popular home tours that we have featured here on One Kindesign from the portfolio of the architects of this project, Cornerstone Architects: Gorgeous Mediterranean home in Texas surrounded by majestic oaks and Modern-rustic barn style retreat in Texas Hill Country.

This dwelling offers separate retreats for the owners and their sons, while providing plenty of space for family time and entertaining guests within the beautiful backdrop of Barton Creek.



This spacious kitchen is designed for entertaining along with a secondary dirty kitchen around the corner leading to the pantry.




A small, cozy den is an inviting space for the family to watch movies together.




The main level encompasses a separate private wing for the master suite and study.



The master bath was organized as one large space, offering His and Hers sides with separate closets and separate doors into the large shower.
