Project: Award-Winning Home’s Kitchen

Project Details

This breathtaking home overlooking Lake Austin was conceived by LaRue Architects. Curved glass walls and floating roof planes, and abundant water features imbue an organic aesthetic that harmonizes with the surrounding limestone hills, towering oak trees, and serene lake. Glass windows throughout the home afford spectacular views and connectivity to nature. The lakeside property includes the main home and three guest casitas joined by a common roof plane for the ultimate venue for hosting family and friends.

 

The spectacular design was awarded the 2023 Luxe Regional Award for Exterior Architecture. The eggersmann Houston team led by Andrea Villamarin was thrilled to collaborate on the new construction project alongside LaRue Architects; sustainability-focused interior designer, Britt Design Group; and builder, Brian Long Custom Homes.

The Kitchen

The homeowners and Laura Britt worked with eggersmann’s Andrea to create a sleek, modern kitchen that melded into the surrounding nature. The wall of handleless cabinets are clad in eggersmann’s grey embossed oak veneer with a horizontal grain to juxtapose the height of the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. Our bi-fold pocket doors are used on taller cabinets to offer easy access without blocking the galley between the wall of cabinets and the island.

 

The cabinets’ soft grey tone complements the custom sky blue of the PYROLAVE waterfall island and backsplash setting a natural palette that mimics the lake and sky that, through floor-to-ceiling windows, seem to be an extension of the kitchen. A curved wood dining table extending from the island and the whimsical balloon glass chandeliers by Austin’s lighting artisans, LWSN, add an organic feel that tempers the strong lines of the cabinetry.
