A multi-family compound rises from a remote, grassy valley on the bank of the Frio River deep in the Texas Hill Country. The goal for this project was to create shelters with an environmental experience unique to its place where Summer madness gives way to Winter stillness. Structures consist of a main house, meditation room over art studio/garage, and two guest studio cottages. Main house and cottages are linked by a slightly elevated walkway. A “breezeway” bookended by concealed multi-slide doors bisects the main house enabling alfresco dining most of the year.
The new owner says the spaces are “cozy…but ample and gracious; dark and moody….but bright and airy”. Sounds like the perfect juxtapositions that allow you to easily adjust per your mood of the moment (or season). Architecture and interior by Cuppett Kilpatrick.
