Magnificent Collaborative Work Results in this Modern and Elegant Home

Viviano built Family HQ for his parents, with the help of his mother Catherine, who is an antique collector. With fifteen years of experience in construction, she helped direct and advise the young architect, and the house is her first collaborative project.
It is located in the city of Houston, Texas, in the United States, on a narrow corner plot. It has two levels and an area of 4,250 square feet (395 square meters). The building is built with concrete bricks stacked and cut to size.
The interior would be configured as a clean and stylized backdrop to house the old furniture that the couple would take with them, which would be combined with contemporary pieces later on. Large square and rectangular windows are oriented towards the sheltered side garden instead of the street.
On the ground floor, there is a living room, a dining room, a corridor with storage, and a kitchen. A bathroom and the garage are connected, just beyond the kitchen area. This main floor is designed to focus on entertainment, while the upper floor is more private and traditional. Three bedrooms, two of them with private bathrooms, are located on the top floor. Landscaping helps produce a quiet area. A row of thin silhouette eucalyptus trees creates a screen that softens the relationship with the street.
