FeaturedLive Oak Ridge Residence by KOA – Keyes Office of Architecture

Introducing the Live Oak Ridge Residence – a stunning contemporary home designed by KOA – Keyes Office of Architecture in 2022 and located in Austin, Texas.

Set within the rolling terrain of West Lake Hills, this beautiful home has been designed to take advantage of the surrounding tree-top views, while also providing privacy from the street.

The upper level has been designed to be visually open to the outdoors, with a ribbon-window design giving unobstructed views of the landscape, and balconies allowing natural air to flow through the home. A stone entry volume buffers the opening living area from the street level, while the kitchen has expansive views of the rolling hills and a curated view of the front yard. Natural light is able to reflect over the stone volume, eliminating the need for any artificial lighting. Finally, the exterior of the home is cloaked in black metal panels and cedar wood soffits, providing a stunning view from the street.
