Scout Island Residence is an elegant architectural masterpiece by alterstudio, in collaboration with the owners. Thoughtfully designed and carefully executed, this award-winning showcase residence is defined by exquisite details and extraordinary quality. The home has a subtle but distinguished presence within an established Austin hillside neighborhood. A private sanctuary to be experienced.
A transparent corridor, at the entryway, appears to be floating over a pair of reflecting pools. Welcoming symmetry draws the eyes toward this glass-encased “bridge”, the centerpiece that connects two “wings” of the residence.
One of our all-time architectural favorites, this residence is warm and inviting. It presents a sense of “suspension”, both literally and figuratively. One is treated with deliberate “surprises”, as one casually strolls through the home. Strategically-placed windows offer beautifully-framed views of the home’s tranquil surroundings. Glass seamlessly integrates nature with the interior space. The owners embrace minimalist interiors with a calming palette, punctuated by the warm accent of custom wood paneling. Window walls, at the rear of the home, offer treetop views, as if one were suspended in nature.
The “life of the house” is directed inwards - a center courtyard, framed by the two parallel wings.
