Consideration “book people”: this is your dream home, the Bookhouse residence by Austin’s Cornerstone Group Architects. Looking down the hill onto this contemporary structure, you’ll see slanted roofs in maintaining with the terrain, and light and airy approaches to corridors and connections. An exterior courtyard is bounded by a retaining wall of rustic stone and attributes concrete paver “walks” an upper-level terrace runs the length of the property and complements 2 stories’ worth of windows. But it is what’s inside this house that will make your book-loving close friends salivate: bookshelves literally kind the walls for a lot of this space. In the living region, even in the dining area and bedroom, they’re as a lot an architectural feature of the house as its deck, its roofline, and its indoor/outdoor ambience.
But make no error: the books aren’t the only glamorous touch here. A pool shimmers at one particular end of the home’s terrace, with an outdoor “living room” adjoining it — full with shrubbery accents and a rug. Wide-plank wood flooring is a unifying element, complementing the contemporary art and contemporary furnishings that accent this open-strategy space. (Note the “zebra” rug on the floor of one nook!) And, even though the bathrom does not function a wall of bookshelves, it does have a soaking tub tucked into a glass-walled corner of the white-and-marble space with shades rolled up, the view becomes an eye-catcher. But when all is said and carried out, the books are the stars here you will in no way lack for some thing very good to study in this casually sophisticated Bookhouse by Cornerstone.
