A Family Affair

In the search for a new home, sometimes practicality takes precedence. It wasn’t the architecture that most attracted Marcus’s clients –although they liked the flow and bones of the house – but rather its large grassy yard, where the couple’s two young boys could run wild. Although Marcus usually keys his design off the architecture, his initial goal for this project was instead to accommodate the homeowner’s young, active family. Throughout the home, the design subtly pays tribute to the wife’s heritage while also reflecting “the more casual nature of life in 21st century Austin”. Perhaps more important, the house also perfectly suits the homeowners, who enjoy and live in every space.
