Luxury interior design at Elm Residence, Texas


Austin-based architectural practice, Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, have completed another architectural gem, the Olivia project. Completed in 2007, the contemporary residential project can be found in Austin Texas, US.

This restoration and addition to a 1916 home in Clarksville strived to maintain its place in the historic context of the neighborhood while also interjecting modernity. While the front façade of the existing home was carefully restored by the designers to keep a familiar face to the street, the addition is distinguished with modern forms, openness, natural materials and detailing.

The U-shaped courtyard plan provides an abundance of sunlight, privacy and opportunities for connected views from other portions of the home.

The main bedroom benefits from a double bed and a fitted wooden headboard that is connected to the wall. A large comfortable white sofa with a luxury silver pillow stands in a corner. A walkin wardrobe has to be one of the highlights of this room – there is certainly no lack of space for those designer Louboutin’s!

The luxury interior design project included the use of the following materials materials: Stucco, Douglas fir, fossilized limestone, unfinished plaster, copper, board formed concrete, quartered white oak, steel, stained Leuders limestone, bronze billet, and
lacquered panels.
