Zilker Park Xanadu

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Although we truly take pride and joy in each project we undertake—every now and again, we are brought into a situation that is a playground for both our imagination and our craftsmanship. This new condo construction in Zilker Park was just that sort of project. This condo duplex was planned for two thoroughly modern residences with progressive, yet warm design. The condos each feature elegant water features and landscaped courtyards at their entrances.  Each blurs the line between indoor and outdoor spaces with an innovative use of screened porches, dual sided fireplaces, covered tiger-wood decks, and large private yards. Inside, we installed these custom oak hardwood floors that we stained to match interior doors for an incredible effect. We combined onyx and granite counters, commercial-style range, and wine coolers give the living and kitchen areas the feel of a cozy yet high-end restaurant. Up the floating stairway, we built a loft with these sleek iron rails.

Perhaps one of our favorite touches was the master spa in which we combined custom tile with a sophisticated pebble floor. Another great example of the fun we get to have on our projects is the kitchen for one of the units. We chose the onyx backsplash behind which we installed lights so as to shine through the natural translucence of that particular stone. Its at times like this when our knowledge of the materials and nuances of how to make the most of them meets the vision of our client—and often an architect or designer… these are the moments we live for!
