Canyon Lake Modern
CKC Provisions & Design
Submission: “This modern home was designed to accommodate friends and family for a relaxing weekend surrounded by calming lake views in the Texas Hill Country. The goal of the home was to achieve a luxury, lived in look but with a modern flare. Taking into account the exterior views, our talented and collaborative design team used the views as artwork to complement the interior furnishings.”
Contemporary in the Hill Country
Submission: “The overall challenge in this design was to create a home with several contemporary options that appeal to growing families and empty nesters looking to build a custom home without sacrificing privacy and large, open spaces used for entertaining and family gatherings. A modern, stone and stucco elevation hints at the luxurious touches that await inside the home, which features a 5-foot garage extension converted into an exterior delivery room that allows for safe and secure package or grocery delivery without access to the interior of the home. A dramatic family room with raised ceiling accent beams and an impressive stone fireplace opens to the kitchen, which was designed to handle large gatherings thanks to added space around the island to facilitate traffic flow. Four panel biparting sliding glass doors open to the Texas-sized covered patio with 11-foot ceilings, which allows the spaces to be combined for entertaining. The primary suite features bowed windows that provide beautiful Hill Country views while also providing an abundance of natural light. A priority was placed on privacy, as it is tucked away from the other rooms in the home, and we opted for small windows above the bed wall for additional privacy. The luxurious spa-like primary bath features a gorgeous glass enclosed walk-in shower and separate free-standing tub along with a large walk-in closet, dual vanities and built-in make-up vanity.”
Submission: “The Ranch Pass Project consisted of architectural design services for a new home of around 3,400 square feet. The design of the new house includes four bedrooms, one office, a living room, dining room, kitchen, scullery, laundry/mud room, upstairs children’s playroom and a three-car garage, including the design of built-in cabinets throughout. The design style is traditional with Northeast turn-of-the-century architectural elements and a white brick exterior. Design challenges encountered with this project included working with a flood plain encroachment in the property as well as situating the house appropriately in relation to the street and everyday use of the site. The design solution was to site the home to the east of the property, to allow easy vehicle access, views of the site and minimal tree disturbance while accommodating the flood plain accordingly.”
San Antonio Mid-Centry Modern
Haven Design and Construction
Submission: “This 1959 Mid Century Modern Home was falling into significant disrepair, but our team could see the true potential. By preserving the beautiful original architectural details, such as the linear stacked stone and the wood ceiling beams, we had a solid architectural base to build new and interesting details upon.”
Stone Oak Modern
CKC Custom Homes
Submission: “Built in the heart of Stone Oak, this modern home has a very sleek and elevated style. The architecture is one-of-a-kind with a minimalistic facade. The contrast of the dark stain with the bright white stucco enhances the architectural features of this modern home. The angles of the intricate roof line and the detailed accents draw your eye toward the front entrance, inviting you into this unparalleled work of art.”
Submission: “The Summit Project consisted of architectural and interior design services to remodel a house. A design challenge for this project was the remodel and reconfiguration of the second floor to include a primary bathroom and bedroom, a large primary walk-in closet, a guest bathroom, two separate offices, a guest bedroom, and adding a dedicated laundry room. An architectural study was made to retrofit the powder room on the first floor. The space layout was carefully thought out to accommodate these rooms and give a better flow to the second level, creating an oasis for the homeowners.”
