House on Taylor’s Branch
Opening up to Taylor’s Branch, a quiet inlet off of Lake Austin, this art-filled, modernist home underwent a dramatic interior and exterior transformation. Exquisite materials, furnishings and art are revealed upon entry, set in dialogue with the natural realm beyond. Much of the fabrics, rugs and cabinetry are custom, bespoke and handmade in such a way as to also stand as their own works of art. This meticulous home was built by Dalgleish Construction, with architecture by Tobin Smith and beautiful outdoor spaces by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects.
