Residence 1414 is a remodeling venture carried out by Miró Rivera Architects.
Found in Austin, Texas, the property plays off the contrast between white and deep, wealthy wood, providing the interior a heightened sense of sophistication.
Residence 1414 by Miró Rivera Architects:
“The original 1940s property suffered an unfortunate addition in the 1980s. The backyard views have been blocked by a hefty fireplace and modest windows meanwhile a fenced-in pool, brick terraces, and roofed arcade all served to divide rather than unify the landscape.
MRA’s aim was to restore the exterior of the residence in this historic neighborhood whilst transforming the interiors to bring in light and provide a much better connection with the exterior. A basic material palette was utilized to keep a balance amongst the conventional aspects of the original home and the contemporary updates necessary by this loved ones of 4.
The garage was renovated to contain an upper level health club, guest alcove, and terrace. Below the terrace an outside residing space activates a previously neglected yard. A Sol Lewitt sculpture, noticeable from the principal rooms of the home, increases the depth of the yard and gives a crisp and geometric focal level.”
