A ranch house with a very mid-century twist that you were probably not expecting.
With a luminous and airy modern layout, this mesmerizing mid-century modern house was designed by Mark Ashby Design in collaboration with Schiflet Group Architects in Austin, Texas. The home was originally constructed in 1961 and was in need of a major overhaul, reconfiguring the interior layout and updating finishes and materials.

The renovation included an expansion of the kitchen, doubling its size, incorporating a state-of-the-art sound system and constructing new exterior living spaces.
The designer worked in close collaboration with the owner to curate their collection of artwork that can be seen on display throughout the home. Most notably is the location of this home, on a hillside property in the city of Westlake Hills, an affluent suburb of Austin, right on the edge of the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
The amazing fixture featured in the living room is a functional sculpture, with a futuristic look that also has mid-century modern flair. It is a Cross Cable Mobile in a powder coated aluminum nickel plated steel shade by David Weeks.
The flooring in the dining space feature end cut wood. The pendant lamp hanging from the ceiling is an Akari Noguchi light sculpture that helps to brighten up the place.
The new design features an open floor plan with expansive floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interiors with natural light.
