Skyline House – an Oasis of Hospitality and Comfort
Skyline House is designed by Dick Clark Architecture and it is located in Austin, Texas. The house looks solid and strongly anchored in the ground, a trustful house enjoying a splendid landscape.
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. A stretch of sliding glass doors pockets completely into the walls, creating a 40’ wide opening between the living area and outdoor spaces. The exterior of the house is made of stone, combined with wood, mixing together a warm and a cold material, enhancing your desire to come inside and admire the gorgeous interior. Floor to ceiling glass and deep overhangs create spaces that are both dynamic 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.
A large terrace invites you inside, where the living space is continued to the kitchen and the dining space, creating an oasis of welcoming and hospitality. The result is a home that functions equally well for a large party as for a quiet moment taking in the sunrise.
