Skyline House by Dick Clark Architecture

By • Apr 1, 2013

Skyline House, located in Austin, Texas, was constructed by Dick Clark Architecture.

Surrounded by large oak trees, the home seems to reciprocate in turn by being decorated in earthy tones though in an elegant modern style.

Skyline House by Dick Clark Architecture:

“On a sloping site in West Lake Hills, this house slides in between mature Live Oaks to create a strong connection to nature and establish a unique sense of place. The form of the house is long and linear, following the natural topography of the site and directing the perspective towards impressive views of downtown Austin. A stretch of sliding glass doors pockets completely into the walls, creating a 40’ wide opening between the living area and outdoor spaces.

Stucco, stone and zinc create a natural and low-maintenance exterior, while floor-to-ceiling glass and deep overhangs create spaces that are both dramatic and comfortable. From the grey porcelain tile floors to the extensive black walnut built-ins, the house was designed and detailed to be easygoing and flexible. The result is a home that functions equally well for a large party as for a quiet moment taking in the sunrise.”
