Highland Park Residence, by Alterstudio Architecture

This project was selected as the honorary winner in the 2021 Residential Architect Design Awards category, Custom House Over 3000 square feet category.

“If you are planning to design a very large house, make it beautifully grand, fantastically executed, and in perfect balance with the landscape.” —Judged Matthew Bremer, AIA

In a typical sprawling-style lot, Austin, Texas-based Alterstudio inserted an elegant two-story form that poses an architectural problem with its more traditional Tudor mansion and French chateau neighbors. The 12,398-square-foot boomerang-shaped floor plan of the residence boldly defines a modern place of quiet rest. Its two stacked volumes are summed up like a solid stone bar hovering above a glazed void, while the landscape extends the ground floor seamlessly across the site. The dramatic addition is a 35-foot cantilever over the entrance to the house and a structure that displays the clients’ art collection.

The overall form minimalism is softened by contrasting textures and finishes: mill-finished steel versus Indiana limestone panels, handmade Mexican tiles, and enameled volcanic stone juxtaposed against walnut furniture and stainless steel light fixtures . The second story stone cladding is stacked vertical bands 3, 6, and 9 inches wide, staggered in a staccato pattern to create shadows and textures. This motif is repeated in the living room’s two-story fireplace, one of many times the architects sculpt the upper volume to enhance the spatial experience of the main level.
