The Vista Residence has been showcased by Arquitectura Viva, a major Spanish-language architectural magazine. Tucked away among dense vegetation on a steep site in West Austin, the home captures a sense of exploration and discovery. Designed for a couple nearing retirement age, the home’s many spaces and experiences are gradually revealed in spectacular fashion.
Outside, a series of outdoor spaces defined by massive concrete walls draw visitors in. The distinct roof profiles provide directionality, essentially “pointing” to the views beyond. Inside, a three-story staircase constructed of 5/8” thick plate steel acts as a hingepoint for the home, with rooms and hallways unfolding from it on every floor.
