Barcelona Modern

The Austin design duo Priscilla Glover and Ivan Spaller (of Spaller Glover Design Build) are at it once again. I have blogged 2 of their projects in the past: "church turned castle" and "extreme gingerbread". This couple has so much creativity between the two of them it's astounding. And this works very much in their favour as they specialize in one of a kind, or once in a lifetime, sorts of houses. This latest project, Barcelona Modern, is located in downtown Austin, Texas and is gorgeous and inspiring as always. Our current project has been something we drafted up years ago and then modified to fit the lot. It is a study in Early European modernism with the intrinsic classical touches of that period- some deco influences (lighting and doors), chevron floor pattern, push-button lighting, glass door knobs, factory style doors. And it has all the comforts of a modern energy efficient home. I love it all - from the round and multi-paned windows to the mirrored riser with tree trunk steps.
Stay tuned later for a peek at this couple's own home. :)

Every photo seems to have two or three really great, original ideas! Exciting!

The home is spectacular.

Palatial and modern at the same time. There are so many unique architectural details that stand out.
The round windows and how they are lit up that awesome green at night is edgy.

The distressed piece of wood used as a bench in the living room is earthy. The garage doors look very Austin and I like the art, too.

Great selection of unique and mixed details that make a crisp and fresh-looking yet comfortable home.

i like the bathroom floor tiles, and the clean feel to the rest of the house, round windows remind me too much of a ship or boat though.
