A luminous modern home in the heart of Austin, Texas: 007 House

007 House is a sleek modern home designed by Dick Clark + Associates, located on an urban property in Zilker, a neighborhood in south central Austin, Texas. This 2,780 square-foot dwelling borrows the spirit of international style combined with a fusion of pattern language to update the modern lifestyle.

Using mass and void strategically, the floor plan opens to establish a seamless connection between indoor areas and inviting outdoor spaces, all the while maintaining a sense of privacy. There is a unique cascading of roofs on this project that progressively sets the residence back and upward from the street, thereby establishing a distinct hierarchy for the pedestrian entrance transition.

Bridging horizontal rooflines help keep a personal scale to the main entrance as they span across the soaring double-height featured screen wall, which is both architectural and structural.

Capitalizing on the corner property enables a centralized entry that naturally arranges the levels of intimacy from your south-facing public areas to the north-side private rooms. Thoughtfully employed landscaping fulfills a dual purpose: crafting privacy and providing an aesthetically pleasing backdrop visible through windows and doors.

A very sophisticated, yet casual elegance is crafted in the architecture and interiors of this residence that flows from exterior to interior and back outside.
