See this awesome urban sanctuary surrounded by a tree canopy in Texas

Nestled amidst the urban forest of Austin, Texas lies this secluded sanctuary, designed by Cuppett Kilpatrick Architects to seamlessly blend into the surrounding canopies of elm and oak. Native and adapted plantings embrace its compact footprint, creating a lush tapestry of greenery.

The abundance of vegetation and the use of naturally weathering materials firmly root the home in its natural surroundings. Positioned on the elevated side of the property, visitors journey through the forest floor before ascending through the treetops, crossing a glass bridge that leads to the entrance and dining area.

Past the entryway’s expansive glass wall, breathtaking views of the Austin skyline unfold above a verdant valley.

Extending from this space, a central open “atrium” invites cool breezes and harmoniously connects sightlines from a rooftop deck to a pool terrace below. The interior spaces are thoughtfully furnished with simplicity and modest proportions.

Luxurious, warm materials and a subtle color palette perfectly complement both the site and the owner’s art collection. While distinctly modern in design, the home’s size, choice of materials, and meticulous placement on the land create a cozy woodland retreat.
