A New Home Elegantly Blends Mediterranean Style with Modern Details

Geschke Group Architecture in collaboration with Arbogast Custom Homes has designed this modern Mediterranean-style home located in Dripping Springs, Texas. Inspired by the timeless look of a Spanish hacienda, the project team designed this residence to be efficient and livable for a modern-day family and incorporated transitional interior design to blend with the old-world style.

The finishes are simple yet refined. Natural light floods every corridor of the house accentuating unique features such as the use of weathered and aged wooden beams. Soaring ceilings create a sense of grandeur and mass. Extensive use of arches, domes, groin vaults, and barrel ceilings complement the modest clean lines and soft tones of the house.

Benjamin Moore’s “Simply White” was used on the exterior stucco facade, which radiates with a warm white tone offset with the red tile roof and the ebony bronze windows to create the perfect exterior finish contrast. The house is perfectly situated on a prime lot that is blanketed with large ancient oak trees.

The heart of the home is the open and inviting great room with its adjoining dining room and kitchen. Each room of this single-story floor plan was meticulously designed to provide the most efficient and optimal use of space. Highlights in this space include seventeen-foot ceilings and a large hand-built masonry fireplace.
