Beautiful Contemporary Homes - Passive Solar House in Texas

  • Like this article? Share it:

Dick Clark Architecture designed this beautiful contemporary home, a sustainable passive solar design in Austin, Texas with a real minimalist appeal. In reflection of the owners’ simple lifestyle, the house stands out for its simple structure, minimalist material palette and barely-there glass walls. The natural treed and landscaped surroundings give the house an “urban oasis” aesthetic. The open-concept main floor houses the kitchen, which opens to a two-storey living and dining area. This glass-enclosed entertaining area features sliding glass walls that open to the pool deck with views of the Austin city skyline. Echoing the home’s natural exterior design, interiors feature lots of natural wood and windows naturally sun-soaked interiors. This eco-sustainable home also features a few other friendly features, namely a 3kw solar panel system, instant hot water heaters, bio foam insulation, rain water collection, efficient mechanical systems and of course, the expansive glass is low-e.

Hi,

I work for Renovate Magazine in New Zealand and we are doing a feature on passive solar home design. I just came across this beautiful example and would like ask to use the images.

Please let me know if you would be interested and if you are, please send high resolution imagery with the appropriate credits.

Kind regards,
Nicole James
