  • Scout Island Residence is an elegant architectural masterpiece by alterstudio, in collaboration with the owners. A home that “shines in person”. Thoughtfully designed and carefully executed, this residence has a subtle but distinguished presence within an established Austin hillside neighborhood.

    One of our all-time architectural favorites. Defined by exquisite details & extraordinary quality, this residence is warm and inviting. It presents a sense of “suspension”, both literally and figuratively. One is treated with deliberate “surprises”, as one casually strolls through the home. Strategically-placed windows offer beautifully-framed views of the home’s tranquil surroundings.

    A transparent corridor, at the entryway, appears to be floating over a pair of reflecting pools. Welcoming symmetry draws the eyes toward this glass-encased “bridge”, the centerpiece that connects two “wings” of the residence. The “life of the house” is directed inwards - a center courtyard. Glass seamlessly integrate nature with the interior space. The owners embrace minimalist interiors with a calming palette, punctuated by the warm accent of custom wood paneling. Window walls, at the rear of the home, offer treetop views, as if one were suspended in nature.

    A private sanctuary to be experienced. Features a “airplane cabin” media room, deeded boat slip and private Lake Austin access. Rare ownership opportunity of an award-winning showcase residence.
