Having a swimming pool in the home is something that most will aspire to – particularly when the weather has been hot as it has recently – but not many will be quite as cool and expertly designed as M1700 House by Ravel Architecture. The quality of the build is impeccable and this stunning residential home, which is located in Austin, Texas, involved finding a place to fit a full-size lap pool on a challenging site with a 25-foot elevation change.
In order to solve the issues facing M1700 House, the architects positioned the pool so that it bisected the house which separated the private areas from the public in the process. The elongated swimming pool, which is partially covered, becomes the main focal point for the property with most rooms having sight lines out to the water.
A multi-story garage can be found next to M1700 House from Ravel Architects which has an outdoor staircase clad in vertical panels that make it have the aesthetic of a birdcage. The bottom floor of the structure is where you’ll find a media room, the second floor is the garage space, and the top is a rooftop garden deck for relaxing and unwinding with a cold beer or two.
There are amazing views from the front entryway of M1700 House which lead straight to the pool and delivers a decidedly striking visual effect upon arrival. The living room of this wonderfully modern property in Austin boasts taller ceilings than the kitchen which gives way to a clerestory windows that flood the interior with an abundance of natural light.
Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors have been implemented in this glorious property in order to remove the separation between the indoors and outdoor areas, while creating a larger living space in the process. There is a real sense of relaxation to M1700 House which we’re loving here at The Coolector and the spectacular swimming pool that intersects the property is the real icing on the cake.
With M1700 House from Ravel Architects there is a real striking sense of luxury to every room in the home that helps to set it apart from the competition. The master bedroom suite is accessed via a long hallway that runs alongside the pool and the minimalistic, understated interiors really fit the design of the home perfectly.
Austin is undoubtedly one of America’s coolest cities and it has got one of the coolest properties courtesy of the extraordinary looking M1700 House from Ravel Architects. There is a real attention to detail throughout the design process and they have showcased the credentials by fitting such an impressive pool into a problematic plot.
