Situated on a 6 acre site in a rural setting just outside the Woodlands in Magnolia, Texas this home is a sophisticated intervention of modern living with simple geometric forms and strong horizontal lines that embraces the natural surroundings.
A meandering circular driveway through the heavily wooded site leads you to the house that from the approach is intertwined with the natural surroundings. As you enter the house one experiences a sharp contrast in which the built environment becomes juxtaposed with an organic backdrop of the untouched wilderness.
Designed for relaxed living and outdoor entertaining the house is configured into a C-shape with the focus on the internal courtyard. 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 feeling protected from the natural surroundings.
