Project in progress: Miron Residence

This week, a special treat: a sneak peek at one of our In Progress projects, the Miron Residence.

Designed by Specht Architects (Austin/New York), this sleek and open home exemplifies Specht’s ethos as “an innovative and creative firm with rigorous standards for modern design.”

Specht, whose work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Dwell and Architectural Digest, racks up awards for its modern designs, and we suspect that the Miron Residence will add a few more to the collection when it’s finished.

A brief description of the project, from Specht’s website:


“A large, floating pavilion roof hovers over the interior and exterior rooms of our Preston Hollow house (expected completion in mid-2018). This design was driven by the client’s desire to blur the line between inside and outside, while also providing a sense of privacy and seclusion from the street.”


“There are multiple courtyards defined by large, frameless sliding glass panels and rough corrugated concrete walls. The house is open and light-filled.”


“Water plays a large part in the design of the house, and also links the exterior and interior spaces. Beginning at the entry, a narrow channel flows through the house to the pool area beyond. At night, lighting within this stream casts changing patterns on the textured walls.”
