Austin TX, Oasis

Lauren Kerr | Kerri Fukui
When our dear past client told us they were moving from California to Austin, TX and asked if we would help design their new home, we gladly hopped on a plane and embarked on a three year-long design adventure! The complexity of the project required many trades's talents and expertise, and while this was truly the work that took an entire 'village' the bulk of the burden was carried by Risinger Build, under the watchful eye of Kyzer Construction, and with the help of Austin's finest pool & landscaping expert Designecology. The task at hand was least to say AMBITIOUS and it included a total transformation of a generic, builder-grade development property to an exquisite all-custom home that radiates with old world Flemish charm. Clustered around an emerald green pool, paved with amalgam of reclaimed stones brought from Europe and encircled within lush gardens (that feel as if they were there for decades), this home is an oasis of privacy that celebrates the marvelous connection between the indoors and the nature that surrounds it. Even though the design of the home took as much time as the design of the outdoor spaces and surrounding landscape, it was impossible to touch one without the other. In order to seamlessly blend indoors and outdoors, drastic changes were made to the existing layouts and we relied on the use of custom Riviera Bronze metal doors & windows to add expansiveness and light to the space. Bespoke, custom designed furniture and lighting fixtures, coupled with carefully curated materials that celebrate materiality as much as the hand of the artist have been used throughout the interiors in order to create a layered, texture abundant, inviting ambiance.
