Project Description

Texas-modern prairie-style

This is a new interpretation of a prairie-style house that fits perfectly in the slow-rolling landscape of the Texas Hill Country. Two wings spread out from a central rectangular anchor that serves as the primary living space. There’s a variety to the metal roof lines and angles that reflect the fact that each aspect of the prairie-style dwelling faces a slightly different direction. The family that lives here enjoys a brand new view of the tree-canopied back yard from each new room they enter.

Inside amenities are a major upgrade from the prairie structures of a previous generation. Stone support columns and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace contrast with warm, high-gloss wood tones in floors, ceilings, beams and sills that invite one to settle in to sumptuous comfort. The interior sight-lines are open and accessible and despite the outside appearance of separate structures, flow easily from room-to-room.

This incarnation of the prairie style isn’t afraid to show off a little opulence, from the sand-dollar chandeliers in bedroom and bath to the floor-to-ceiling display of the owners vast wine collection. But in keeping with the prairie ethos, the primary construction materials are home-grown – from the Texas limestone to the wood accents.
