Southampton Residence: A Modern Brownstone Home in Texas
Some of the homeowners are still fascinated with classic architectural design that’s why some are still using bricks or blocks in designing their homes. A brick is made from a molded clay-bearing soil, sand and lime that are used commonly in masonry construction. Although bricks comes in different types and forms its beauty still outshine in any construction. In fact, bricks are used primarily as a texture to the wall for the exterior of the house (and also for some interior walls). And an example of this design is a brownstone house, similarly to what we have for the day.
Southampton Residence is a home for a juvenile family that has freshly relocated to Houston, Texas from a foremost city in United States. Since they are honoring the past design of their house which was a ‘brownstone’, the residents wished for a brick house with a modern approach. The house features four bedrooms and three and a half baths with an enormous space for the main living spaces. Though the exterior of the house uses bricks as the primary material, its interior is softened then by the use of glass and woods. And also, to accent the interior with natural lights the house is installed with large windows.
The house is designed with full bricks and integrated with glass to assist a sufficient light.
