ON THE BOARDS
Take a sneak peek at some of our upcoming projects.
This 6,500 square foot speculative residence offers stunning views and ample living space both indoor and outdoor. This amenity-rich residence is another speculative venture with VII Custom Homes and is for sale.
This 5,400 square foot residence is situated on a corner lot with gentle slopes and distant lake views. The L-shaped planning allows optimal daylight and occupies the lot's edges to create both a buffer to the street and a maximum of outdoor space and lawn. Simple, elegant roof geometry recalls mid-century modernism but an updated, contemporary flow and expression.
The Man Cave
The Man Cave
Designed as a destination “hang out” for this client and his friends, this Man Cave is fully outfitted with a full bar, billiards room, and Media room. The design responds to the main house architecturally but in a more minimal package that also works as a supplemental living area for the adjacent patio and pool.
This Scandinavian Modern inspired ranch house opens up to sweeping views of the owner’s property. Cornerstones of this project center around Scandinavian design principles: Integration w/ Nature, simplicity in design, utilization of natural light, creative use of natural materials and functionality with comfort all blend in this with other regional design elements to create a fresh solution. Our client’s mission: “Prioritize functionality without eliminating grace and beauty.”
This project seeks to amplify the timeless dog trot concept used in the area for many generations. Overlooking a natural pond and expansive hill country views, the house is organized around a large dog trot area that has evolved into a sort of outdoor living space that is almost a “house within the house”.
The house seeks to combine Santa Barbara style concepts with modernist touches. The client's lifestyle is casually marked by a strong desire to “blend indoor/outdoor living and maximize views of nature to enhance that feeling.” In response, the design concepts center on daylighting, outdoor entertaining, and ample, direct contact to exterior spaces and views within a more minimal and sleek interpretation of the style the clients love.
This decidedly modernist design is rooted in mid-century design concepts and uses a classic, open-ended courtyard to create inward views and privacy in a dense, urban development.
The clients for this project desire a modernist yet Meditteranean inspired design. The design concept seeks to explore and reduce the stucco massing found in the Mediterranean into a cleaner, modernist forms. Situated on a steeply sloping site the house juts out over terraced, exterior living spaces to capture views and create shade. The courtyard entry is also indicative of Mediterranean principles but in this case, it also allows the house to be transparent and light-filled while maintaining privacy.
This project is a speculative concept that we hope becomes a reality. The design concepts center around contemporary interpretations of the organic design principles in the early work of Frank Lloyd Wright. A walkout basement allows the main living spaces to cantilever and “float” over the terraces below while lightly structured elements on the upper floor open up to the wooded views that surround the house.
Designed for a family of six, this house seeks to provide multiple living spaces-both interior and exterior-that are both private and open to the expansive hill country views beyond. The clients highly desired a minimal but warm design that highlights highly crafted details and materials.
This project is a unique work-live residence packaged within the primary goal of fully restoring the existing residence.
The focus of this project is to create a new residence from the remains of the old that considers views, context, scale, and siting. A heavy need for ample drainage synthesized with the need for a higher finished floor to take advantage of city views is realized in a solution that honors the relatively mid-century context of the surrounding homes while maintaining a scale that also matches. The overall design seeks to amplify those mid-century roots in an updated residence that is amenity-rich.
A modified courtyard scheme fits the bill for this young couple that hopes to grow their family into this house. The plan organizes and zones public and private spaces around an open-ended courtyard to provide security for the young, to frame views to the hill country, to provide ample daylight, and to screen out the nearby neighbors. The design is decidedly modern but takes cues from regional design principles to feel at once both old and new.
The transitional design seeks to reinvent and rethink the language of the neighboring residences. The design is speculative and seeks to appeal to a broad range of prospective owners.
Another speculative design, this modernist design is elevated to create privacy from the adjacent street while allowing primary views and amenities to function with privacy from the front yard.
This concept is about the retreat. The client’s goals are modest: create a fresh new design that doesn’t overwhelm from the street frontage while also capturing as much usable outdoor space as possible. The second-floor living room cantilevers to create a front porch but it also reaches out to the adjacent tree canopy to create an elegantly private space. An adjacent roof deck reinforces this concept.
Yet another speculative residence, the design seeks to maximize the house for large gatherings and lakefront living.
