Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Patrick Wong is an Austin-based architectural photographer who lived with his wife and a daughter in a small beautiful house which once a neighborhood. The firm Cottam Hargrave is the company behind a 1,700 square-foot structure that begins as a one-story at the entrance façade then rises to a second story at the back to accommodate the bedroom loft area.
There is an angled roof on the exterior thet protects the occupants from extreme midday sun, but the meticulously placed windows allow plenty of bright, constantly shifting light in throughout the day. Beyond the glass entrance door is the living/studio area; the interior stair leads to the sleeping loft.
Wong added a simple wall at left in the open sleeping loft to create an enclosed sleeping area for Jasmine. He also built the headboard, which doubles as storage space for the large rolls of paper he uses as backdrops for photo shoots. Wong wanted a light floor; the architects whitewashed the tongue-and-groove subfloor decking, which helps bring in even more light from the dominant, East-facing window.
A view along the main axis through the house and into the backyard, with the campanile of a nearby church beyond. On either side of the main hall is Wong’s office, storage and a bathroom, with the kitchen at the end. Above, the patinaed steel balustrade hides a vent and incorporates a sculpture Wong’s parents brought back from a trip to China.
The rear of the concrete-clad house leads to the small kitchen, off of which Wong parks his scooter. The large planter from Big Red Sun serves as a focal point for the main axis, which runs straight through the middle of the house. Upstairs is the sleeping loft. The home uses cellulose insulation, made from recycled newspapers and other paper sources.
