tuscan concrete

A rich Tuscan inspired exterior disguises a highly energy efficient home constructed of poured-in-place concrete. 10" to 12" thick walls, floor/ceiling structures provide exceptional insulation values and sound attenuation. Veneers of stone, stucco and tile sheath the walls to repel the harsh Texas sun. Owners of a concrete placement company, the clients desired a home that would stand the test of time, provide unsurpassed structural strength, safety and insulation from the dramatic Texas elements and replicate its old-world counterparts - massive stone/block walls of the old rural Tuscan wine country. The main house and detached guest casitas organize the plan around a central courtyard. Terraces and two stacked "outdoor living rooms" blend the house with its natural surroundings. Building placement creates privacy and focuses the views on the adjacent greenbelt and native park areas.
