Modernist Treehouse

Austin, Texas

This beautiful home was built from the ground up in West Austin.  Mark Ashby Design was brought on from the outset of the project, selecting all finishes from plaster to the nuanced mix of the various wood species found throughout.  Built for a minimalist who wanted to let the outside in, each room is lifted well above street level and engages the canopy of majestic Live Oaks that surround the property. Thoughtful, textural furnishings, showcasing an array of exceptional custom made furniture and hardware, create the warm natural look that is austere and refined yet inviting.
