Attention “ebook individuals”: that is your dream home, the Bookhouse residence by Austin’s Cornerstone Group Architects. Looking down the hill onto this contemporary construction, you’ll see slanted roofs in line with the terrain, and lightweight and ethereal approaches to corridors and connections. An exterior courtyard is bounded by a retaining wall of rustic stone and options concrete paver “walks”; an higher-degree terrace runs the size of the home and enhances two tales’ value of home windows. But it’s what’s inside this home that may make your ebook-loving buddies salivate: bookshelves actually type the partitions for a lot of this area. In the dwelling space, even within the eating room and bed room, they’re as a lot an architectural function of the home as its deck, its roofline, and its indoor/outside atmosphere.
But make no mistake: the books aren’t the one glamorous contact right here. A pool shimmers at one finish of the house’s terrace, with an outside “front room” adjoining it — full with shrubbery accents and a rug. Wide-plank wooden flooring is a unifying aspect, complementing the fashionable artwork and modern furnishings that accent this open-plan area. (Note the “zebra” rug on the ground of 1 nook!) And, whereas the bathrom doesn’t function a wall of bookshelves, it does have a soaking tub tucked right into a glass-walled nook of the white-and-marble room; with shades rolled up, the view turns into an eye fixed-catcher. But when all is claimed and completed, the books are the celebs right here; you’ll by no means lack for one thing good to learn on this casually elegant Bookhouse by Cornerstone.
