This project is set back on a narrow lot in River Oaks, giving it a modest curb appeal that, once entered, reveals a much grander plan. The front façade displays a strong balance of brick and metal cladding that recesses into a softer combination of wood and glass. This subtractive style of architecture invites an immediate interest into the interior layout. The entire first floor has an open view to the manicured landscaping and waterfall pool. Two entertainment decks and a summer kitchen share this view from the shade of the second floor overhang. This four bedroom / four and a half bath is an unassuming contemporary home that has the grandeur of a River Oaks mansion without having to state it.
