Check out this new Modern Colonial design that broke-ground in spring 2017 located in Towne Oak Estates just north of Coxhill Gardens.
Our physician clients with young children were looking to establish roots with a long-term home to raise their family on the north side. They wanted their home to stand-out but fit-in. In addition, they were interested in clean-lines, but within a traditional framework or style. Many of the images they shared could be considered transitional, and most included a rich but simple material palette of wood and masonry paired with clean white walls, dark-painted window frames void of wall trims, and colorful culture-specific artworks and idols.
Vastu shastra was and is an important consideration in the design of this home (but not quite as important to our clients as the grandparents). We integrated these principles for many major design considerations, but not all. At HAUS, we like to latch-on to program-elements that are particularly unique to each client. For this particular partnership, the Puja space was an aspect that we could design around. We were able to highlight the Puja as an architectural feature accentuated on the front elevation with a contrasting natural wood material inside and out.
