Castle Hill is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. This client came to us wanting to make a change from the larger, more spread-out family home to a more compact, urban abode. The house is located in the historic Castle Hill neighborhood and is situated directly next to the castle itself, so our goal became to design a home that fits into the constantly evolving building fabric of this very sought-after area in Austin. Responding to the existing historic homes, the materials of warm limestone, light stucco, and wrought-iron-inspired metal accents echoed the color palette of the surrounding structures.

The house’s footprint is compact, with three stories of spaces stacked up to maximize yard and open space below, but also captures downtown views above with the open-air decks situated on every level. We carefully edited to integrate previous collections and pieces, incorporating color and fun with a backdrop of timeless neutrals. The result is a thoughtful, modern home that is unique to the client’s style and feels inviting on every level.
