Hazel Baker Designs a Rustic Home on the slopes of the Franklin Mountains

By • May 10, 2017

Located on the slopes of the Franklin Mountains in Texas, USA, this wonderful residence was designed by the Tucson-based studio Hazel Baker. Rising 2,500 feet above the Rio Grande River Valley, it has adapted to the site’s undulating and steep topography, with the three-storey home maintaining a direct connection to the outside at each level.

The white-cream used on its exterior, perfectly combined with walls lined with beautiful stones, definitely give a warmer air to this modern construction.

Its arid exterior, of sparse vegetation and abundant rocky formations, has wonderful views of the mountains and the city.

The swimming pool area gives us wonderful moments to relax and, at the same time, connects us with the interior through the long glass doors placed alongside the house.

Its modern interior, full of light that seeps in through the multiple glass doors and windows that have been arranged throughout each of the various spaces, allows us to freely enjoy the outdoors even while inside.

Walls and floors in wood add warmth to the atmosphere and maintain the rustic style of the exterior.

At night, the imposing construction stands out in the landscape thanks to the lights of its interior that flow out to the exterior.
