Hartford Residence

With an owner’s vision for a refined retreat notable for fluid spaces and artful detail, this centrally located Austin residence makes the most of its steeply sloped, quiet, leafy site. Throughout the house, the flow of spaces is informed by light; rooms open one after another and draw residents forward to discover what’s next. Two deceptively simple single-story gabled structures are connected by a glass entry foyer through a formal entry court. The glass entry reveals an outdoor living oasis with a pool at the sunken rear yard while bridging public and private wings on the main level. The public wing provides a vaulted great room for kitchen, living and dining with a balcony that overlooks the pool below. A delicate open trea... More

Wasatch Live-Work

The Wasatch Live Work project is located on a gently sloping hillside in a residential neighborhood southeast of downtown Salt Lake City. The project was designed for a family of four who had lived on the property for over twenty years and wanted to reinvest in the fabric of their neighborhood to remain indefinitely. The clients called for an energy efficient home, a place for the family to connect, converse, and refresh; in addition, they wanted a separate work-from-home space. The client’s metal/wood working business required space where sparks from his metal work wouldn’t endanger his woodwork, and a space flooded with natural light for photographing his work. The wood and metal clad gabled building volumes are organized aro... More

Wellfleet Modern Home

The owners of the Wellfleet Modern Home lived on the West Coast and wanted a comfortable, energy-efficient green vacation home near their family on the Cape with the ability to rent it out when they were away.    Nesting in a ¾ acre lot in the pines, the home pays homage to the modern architectural legacy on the outer Cape and has a simple rectinilear design that offers living space on both the entry and lower/basement levels, preserves privacy, optimizes natural light, and provides outdoor living spaces. With a super insulated building envelope, carefully designed mechanical systems, high-efficiency appliances, and a rooftop solar electric system, the home exhibits exceptional performance and consumes 89% less energy tha...

Project • By Need DesignPrivate Houses


The cottage is located in the village of Lesniki, Kiev region, in a very picturesque place on the slope. We placed the first floor parallel to street, and the ground floor we placed  perpendicular to the slope and oriented it to a specific natural point. So this is a  terrace-type house, where the roof of the ground floor is a terrace for the first. We have created an interesting and dynamic architectural form, but at the same time inscribed in the surrounding landscape. More

Modern House Design in Muscat Oman

This modern house design located in Muscat, Oman and designed by CAS is a proof that modern does not have to mean cold, as this house exemplifies with its inviting warmth.  The modern and strict geometric elements are softened by the warmth of the earthly colors and yellow lights. These geometric forms are repeated in the landscape through the orthogonal shape of planting areas, pools, and pergola structures Balance in proportions is the key to the successful design of this modern house design.

Fox Falls Ranch

Located on a 41 acre ranch at the edge of Texas Hill Country, this single-story ranch house is situated within dense stands of live oak trees which filter westward views to the Balcones Creek. The house’s living areas bridge courtyard spaces on the north and south and are bordered by thick limestone walls that screen private bedroom wings on the east and west. A screened outdoor living room and master suite overlook the creek which flows vigorously with a bit of rain. Pivoting slatted doors help mitigate winds at covered outdoor circulation and living areas while deep roof overhangs provide shade from the harsh Texas sun. Exterior materials are selected for their resilience, durability, and ability to weather well which will allow t... More

Rancho Carrizo

Located at the highpoint of a family ranch south of San Antonio, this home is designed to function as a stairway to the treetops. Elevating the primary living space above the dense surrounding woods will allow the family to enjoy abundant air, light, and uninterrupted views spanning 14 miles. Native stone walls ground the home to its site, provide structure for the lighter three-story steel and wood program above, and create entry and entertaining spaces. Guests arrive to a central dog run porch flanked on both sides by a natural courtyard that offers vertical circulation to living areas above. With two levels of living area above and a fourth floor perch that functions as an outdoor living room, each space captures a different experience... More

Piano Forte

Pianoforte is a musical term referring to the variations in volume or loudness. Inspired by our clients’ love of all things with keys, the residence interprets the masculine form as ‘loud’ and the play of light as ‘soft’. The site required a strong response to the very active 1st Avenue to the south while transparency and perforations soften the form along Oneida Street. The L-shaped plan addresses the active corner while providing protection to the rear outdoor landscape. The entry becomes a gateway into this secret garden. Light breathes life into the living space in the morning and pours into the kitchen from the southern clerestory above. Our client, who currently plays the organ at weekly services, has wor... More

Mallard Creek Modern Home

The Mallard Creek residence is influenced by site features that include a wetland with a stream, a lake surrounded by an agrarian alfalfa field and impressive views of Long’s Peak. A long stone wall provides a reference datum that links both public and private, indoor and outdoor spaces into a cohesive whole. The house is organized around a sunrise court to the east which gazes upon the lake and a sunset court to the west to take advantage of mountain views. The private master suite contains a meditation space overlooking the lake for morning rituals while the evening court utilizes an outdoor grill for sundown activities and dining. Roof planes undulate to allow clerestory light into the spaces below while providing intimate scale f... More

Casa SL

In an irregular lot, the house is located in order to win the major lake view. In relation to this, the social sector appears on the ground floor, composed of living and dining room, kitchen and an opened gallery, free of columns that frames the view and proposes a fluid connection inside - outside. On the same floor, a set of solid volumes, containing services, work as visual barriers and give privacy to the house. Over them, on the first floor, there is a single volume of concrete that contains the private sector, from where you also have a privileged view of the landscape. Another important issue that we developed in this project had to do with the study of different forms of sustainable energy generation. As a result of the an...

Palo Alto Residence

A young Palo Alto couple with three children came to us with the desire to build a more modern interpretation of the traditional home that occupied this prominent corner lot in Old Palo Alto. As a couple that loves entertaining, they envisioned a multi-purpose home with ample room for their family, as well as generous social spaces that seamlessly flow from the inside out with as little circulation space as possible. Though challenged by the constraints of their small lot, a collaborative and thoughtful approach allowed a final solution to emerge that seamlessly integrated landscape, architecture, and interiors into a cohesive whole. With our guidance, the couple’s search for comfort, efficiency, spaciousness, and light, gradually tra... More
