From the Publisher
El Paso, Texas
The sparkling remnants of the abandoned quartz mine became the inspiration for the massing of the new house: A modernist white lime stucco rectangle balancing atop and perpendicular to a rectangular building rendered in a rubble style that’s commonly seen around the city.
San Antonio, Texas
“This is a house with a lot of history,” says San Antonio-based architect Tobin Smith. And, it’s not afraid to show it. The pink brick and Saltillo tile residence is a singular example of a house designed by O’Neil Ford that still is essentially in its original condition.
“We wanted to be simple and direct,” says project architect Brian Comeaux, “and to use the existing five-bedroom ranch house as the anchor in a compound.”
The neighborhood’s Bohemian past informed architect Paul Lamb’s intuition about what the house could feel like—casual, imaginative, and a place where life is lived to the fullest. “The site is powerful,” says architect Paul Lamb. “Materials can be robust and we have room to breathe.”
Architect Michael Morrow wondered how to embrace the sky, which was what had attracted the peripatetic client to Marfa in the first place. “It dawned on me,” says Morrow, “to put light boxes on the roof so that the house would have views of the sky and also would have light inside.”
"Two years after releasing Marfa Modern, a book on the interiors of homes in Marfa, author Helen Thompson and photographer Casey Dunn are at again. This time, the Austin duo details modernism in Texas in Texas Made/Texas Modern. Using 19 projects from around the state, the book examines the relationship of the house to the site, the materials used and how structures function in the harsh climate."—Austin Home
"A gorgeous display of modernist architecture and interior design that's particularly Texan."
