Juxtaposed with the untouched wilderness of the Magnolia countryside, this sophisticated home combines contemporary living with simple geometric forms and strong horizontal lines that embrace the natural surroundings.
A meandering driveway intertwined with the landscape creates a captivating journey as you approach the home. Upon arriving, the sharp contrast between the built structure and the natural environment emerges, giving the home a bold yet inviting initial impression. Designed for relaxed everyday living and outdoor entertaining, the house is configured into a C-shape with the focus on the internal courtyard. The covered patios are a modern interpretation of the Texas wrap-around porch, perfect for southern outdoor living.
The arrangement of the living spaces around the large, open courtyard helps bring the natural world into the heart of the domestic realm while still achieving a sense of protection from the elements.
