Two CRA Projects Receive National Recognition via the 2019 Master of Design Awards

We are MASTERS OF DESIGN for the second year in a row!

Excited to have two of our projects receive some national attention.  Our Cherry Lane Residence was awarded GOLD in the mid-range whole house remodel category.  Our Lake Austin Pool Cabana received a BRONZE award in the outdoor living category.

This is the cover of Qualified Remodeler Magazine, September 2019, featuring Cherry Lane! See pg. 32 for the project profile.  A big thanks to our build partners for their work on these two outstanding projects.

Excited to share finished pictures from our Explorer Residence with Peak Design Build LLC.

Our Explorer Residence in Lakeway, TX tames a difficult hillside site with a modern composition of spaces, forms, and materials. A front drive court enables separation from the roadway up the hill so the home feels very much in its own world. The main entry becomes a nexus for circulation up or down to private spaces, or flowing straight into the open communal spaces. A broad rear deck embraced by tree canopy overlooks the pool as the hillside continues to descend. Entry to our Explorer Residence transverses the main axis so that while the main spaces run broadly to the view, circulation is more dynamic. Vantage points to the view are restrained to create moments peeking through the tree canopy, while the panorama is reserved for the moment one enters the expansive open deck adjacent to the main spaces. The asymmetric arrangement of the kitchen at one end of the main axis softens the formality to allow for a more inviting sub-space within the larger open plan. By locating various elements of interest such as corner windows in the main spaces diagonally across from the entry foyer, the home draws one in while simultaneously extending its reach beyond.

Check out Paul Finkel’s lovely architectural photos from our Peak Lookout Residence completed with builder, Todd Fletcher of Peak Design Build LLC!

The Peak Lookout Residence is contemporary, luxury home located in Lakeway, TX. The residence is positioned on a gently sloping site and oriented towards distant views. The linear parti frames outdoor spaces both to the north and south of the residence and works with passive solar principles and breezes to allow for an efficient green design. This is a 5 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath residence with a 3 car garage and ample pool deck for entertaining and outdoor living. The material palette is quiet but elegant, consisting primarily of stucco, stained cedar accents and anodized RAM windows through out.
