interiors in austin

[NOTE: This post originally appeared on a now-deleted blog and is being re-posted here for my own sake.]

I cannot believe how long it has been since I’ve posted. It’s really quite a travesty. Since my sewing machine hasn’t been touched (except to push it further against the wall), I figured I would share the only pictures I’ve taken recently – architecture around Austin. Figuring that most people wouldn’t care about all the construction details, I picked some interior shots that I thought were particularly inspiring.

First up is the Livestrong Lance Armstrong Foundation Headquarters by Lake/Flato and Bommarito Group. From the exterior, the building was rather unassuming, but the interior felt extremely spacious. There was a lot of warm wood, with much of the wood used recycled from the previously-existing building.

Then comes a private residence called Undertree House by Loop Design. It has been described as somewhat “whimsical”, but has a great Austin vibe and is very environmentally-responsive. Its name derives from the fact that the house’s plan was arranged based on the existing trees on the lot.

Lastly is another private residence, Wolfe Den by MJ Neal. This was a very modern house – nice clean lines all over the place. The house’s entire side wall was covered in touch-latched closets, so all their stuff was hidden.

There was the most beautiful bathroom ever in that house. Loving the white. And that white counter? It’s cast concrete!

So this is the type of thing that I get excited about. I’ll probably end up showing more architecture pictures on this blog, because it’s my blog and I can do whatever I want. Also, I haven’t been very productive or crafty. The holiday season is coming up, which I’m really excited about. Unfortunately that just means more hectic-ness for me, but if I’m going to be making any gifts, I should probably get on that. Anyway, I probably won’t post again for a while, so: Happy Early Thanksgiving!
