Dwell's Favorite Home Design Ideas and Photos

Julie and Chris Hill’s home in Austin is built around a pair of massive oak trees, one of which shoots through an ipe deck, past a Loll deck chair, and into a void in the overhanging roof. “The hole also allows light to penetrate deeper into the house,” notes designer Kevin Alter. A limestone brick wall mirrors the curves of the Western red cedar roof, the edges of which are coated in stucco.
A second aperture in the roof is located over the shallow end of the pool. An alfresco dining area, with seating by Kettal, is perched a few steps below.
In the master bath, the architect managed to combine privacy and a view by adding a horizontal-line pattern to the glass wall.
In the master bath, a Dornbracht tub filler is paired with a tub by Philippe Starck for Duravit.
The exterior reveals the addition located at the rear of the structure. An earlier renovation included adding landscaping by Pamela Burton.
