If you have attended the Austin Modern Home Tour in the past, you know it is an amazing opportunity to tour some of Austin's best contemporary homes and meet the architects and designers behind the projects. This year is no different! It's no surprise that the tour is going virtual this year, however you will still be touring amazing homes and have live Q&A with the design professionals. The new format lends itself to several benefits!
• Super easy tour logistics! You are able to "visit" every home on the tour without being rushed and from the comfort of your own home! No dealing with traffic, parking, potential for bad weather, etc.
• Access to the 3D home models and tour segments after the tour! Can't join the LIVE show? Or maybe you want to go back and look at a specific detail again? No problem! The virtual Austin Modern Home Tour segments will be available to view and revisit after the event ends. Your virtual ticket gets you access to the segments and models so you can explore them at your convenience. You can enjoy the tour of each home without the stress of trying to document all of your design inspiration at the same time. The 3D models will be tagged and marked with info, links, and multimedia for the viewer's reference.
• Q&A with the architects and designers! It's not always easy competing for time with the design professionals during an in-person tour. The live virtual event allows for viewers to submit questions in a chat format for the host to address throughout the tour. Not only will you get answers to your specific questions, but you will hear feedback to other viewer's questions and learn even more!
Cornerstone Architects is excited to be part of this exciting event! Founding partner, Mark Carlson, will be representing Cornerstone as he leads the audience through a tour of our Lake Travis Treehouse project...which also happens to be his personal vacation home!
Located on Lake Travis, the 1,500 square foot modern treehouse was designed to be a comfortable cabin retreat taking advantage of beautiful waterfront views. The main living area was designed on the second floor and is cantilevered on all four sides over the two single car garages below, giving the modern cabin a treehouse façade.
The kitchen and outdoor living areas were designed to entertain large groups, with a large kitchen island and a sectional seating area and fire table accommodating up to 10 people. A large 18×9 foot sliding glass door helps merge the indoor and outdoor living areas. Below, one of the garages is designed to house a car, paddle boards and a golf cart while the other garage serves as an entertainment area with a TV, pool table, ping pong, and shuffleboard.
This modern treehouse is a cozy, yet spacious second home retreat perfect for a relaxing getaway as well as entertaining guests on the shores of Lake Travis.
The Austin Modern Home Tour live event will take place this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, March 6th and 7th. Don't forget to purchase your tickets and use the promo code CORNERSTONE21 to receive $5 off!
