The Bellville Project designed by Dick Clark + Associates is a multi-structure composition on a sprawling 700-acre site located in the Texas Hill Country. From the onset, the two families who own the property were clear about what they wanted the project to be: a communal ranch, featuring private residences and a shared clubhouse, allowing for both private retreat and regular entertaining. Our design team visualized a shared central pavilion easily accessible from the two residences, but the true challenge was to create custom homes that individually addressed the couples’ different aesthetics and wish lists, while connecting the overall property with a unified design.

Hill Country Modern is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. On a large private lot at the foothills of the Hill Country, this client wanted their house to be ingrained in nature, rather than up on the hill towards the view; what results is a beautiful play fashioned amongst landscape and building – with each one stealing the spotlight from each other around every bend. To achieve greater privacy and to use the superior natural quality of it’s surroundings, we have nestled the house deep into the lot and worked integrally with the Landscape Architect to create a balance in the environmental setting and positioning.

Bohn House by Dick Clark + Associates. This iconic Austin residence was first built in 1938 as a modern, art deco home that emulated a 1930s ocean-liner, with aluminum railings, porthole windows, a solarium with a curved glass wall, and a circular mahogany door that could be raised and lowered at the touch of a button.

Skyline is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. On a sloping site in West Lake Hills, this house slides in between mature Live Oaks to create a strong connection to nature. The form of the house is long and linear, following the topography of the site and directing the perspective towards impressive views of downtown Austin. Photography by Paul Bardagjy.
Orleans Harbour is a project designed by Dick Clark + Associates. After living in their Lake Austin fronted condo for over 10 years, the homeowners wanted a dramatic departure from what they had – a traditional, segregated and enclosed plan with French country furniture and lots of color. Being prominent figures in the Austin community, they insisted that we helped to elevate their entertaining lifestyle and surround them in a clean, contemporary open space with high ceilings with an emphasis on maximizing their gorgeous lakefront views at every turn.
