A fresh, modern home in Austin Texas by FAB Architecture. Clean contemporary lines but with a hint of a more traditional home. Siding, gables, paned windows. Inside bright and light spaces accented with black. Stylishly simple and simply stylish.

I'm not getting an American vibe, let alone a Texas vibe, which is a very good thing. While the living room set-up awkward, when the real furniture is in there (I'm just going to assume!) it's probably good. The architecture is great, I love the almost cartoonish exterior and the open spaces. Tile, built-ins, wonderful euro-kitchen, although I wouldn't like to be stuck between the stove and the fridge with a difficult recipe — I'd rather spend two hours stirring and looking out the window than standing in a bottleneck.

It looks like a "remuddle" of a very American, hideous 70's-80's faux colonial or split level that were so plentiful in the 'burbs. The interior spaces seem "off." It's hard to believe this is a new build. It's as if the architect's were trying to open and modernize it, but didn't want to lose structural walls, or move the staircase, etc.
I can understand DIYer's and house-flippers doing something like this. But, for architects…not so fab.

Lovely. Wonderful! So serene. A beautiful mix of tradition and modern.
I love it.
