Alex Robinette | Rollingwood, Texas | Michael Rhodes, Arrowhead Construction | Casey Dunn | Alex Robinette
When it came to designing her family home on a verdant Rollingwood plot adjacent to Zilker Park, Austin architect Alex Robinette developed what she sums up as “a hybrid of Texas vernacular with a raw, simple and rugged design sensibility.” Collaborating with Ryan Street Architects and Arrowhead Construction, Robinette modernized the spirit of the site’s previous structure in a palette of limestone blocks, steel plate, and wood siding charred in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. While the interior spaces flow effortlessly from one room to the next, large steel-casement windows offer serene views of the surrounding forest and its myriad wildlife. Recently showcased in a Luxe magazine feature penned by Maile Pingel and photographed by Casey Dunn, Robinette’s home is appointed with contemporary pieces by Dutch, Belgian and Italian designers as well as an array of fixtures and hardware sourced from Alexander Marchant.
