Reconstruction of a Home in Austin, USA by Murray Legge Architecture

By • Sep 19, 2017

This house, of a very typical Austin, USA style, dates back to 1940 and has a 1300 square foot area. It was remodeled in the year 2015 by Murray Legge Architecture. Despite this, the project was personally supervised by two architects, Murray Legge and Travis Avery. This is how a space of low, dark and dingy ceilings has radically shifted, becoming a far more pleasant space, full of light and welcoming warmth.

Its exterior still has the same structure of yesteryear: walls lined with wooden sheets painted an opaque gray and a small terrace that connects with the interior of the living room.

The living room, dining room and kitchen all share the same space, totally renovated and full of natural light that seeps through the lines of glass placed on the ceiling, and which connects with the wooden beams that cross it from side to side.

The kitchen, done in mint green, black, and white, creates a cool atmosphere in contrast to the beautiful wooden floor that has been installed throughout the house.

The bathroom still retains sparkles of old, which was combined with more modern touches. And it is this combination of styles that makes this project so interesting.
