2020: The Highlights

2020 may not have been the year that any of us imagined, however there are always silver linings to be found. We would love to share some of the highlights from this past year that we celebrate as we look ahead to 2021!


Cornerstone Architects was excited to participate in the 12th Annual Austin Modern Home Tour featuring our Portofino Ridge Residence!

This year’s virtual Home Builders Association of Greater Austin's Parade of Homes took place at The Reserve at Lake Travis. While we have designed numerous projects at The Reserve, one of the highlights of the parade was our Cypress Cove Treehouse. Take a tour of architect, Mark Carlson’s personal lakehouse retreat!


With a growing demand for interior design services, Cornerstone Architects expanded our interior design team! Now led by Jennifer Garner, RID, the interior design department offers our clients the option for interior finish and fixture selection consulting services as well as furnishings services to provide a seamless collaboration between architecture and interiors.


We always love to see our projects come to life! These are a few amazing projects added to our custom residential portfolio this past year.

From office and medical to retail and event spaces, our commercial portfolio has also been growing. Here is just a sample, but be sure to browse our commercial website gallery for more images.


Cornerstone Architects is proud to have supported the Central Texas Food Bank this year! Back in January, we had a great time sorting food and helping to provide 2,000 meals for our community. We also hosted a November food drive and collected non-perishable food items as well as monetary donations from several friends and colleagues!


We were thrilled to be included in the Luxe Interiors + Design 2020 Gold List earlier this year. Cornerstone projects were also among the winners of the publication’s annual RED Awards. Read more about the winning projects on our blog! Thank you to the 40+ million monthly users comprising the Houzz community for awarding us Best of Houzz for the NINTH year in a row! We also took home several HBA MAX Awards including the Grand MAX Award: Custom Home of the Year for our Greenshores Residence. To top it all off, Cornerstone was selected as an HGTV Designer of the Year Nominee!


We are always looking for fun and talented individuals to join our team, and so we grew our Cornerstone family in 2020 by welcoming Jennifer, Deanna, Brandon, Morgan, Roger and Shane!

Looking back on 2020, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible. It is in this spirit that we say thank you and happy new year.

Best wishes for 2021, Cornerstone Architects
