Designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture, this Texas home has a facade that’s a bit different to regular homes, in that the front masonry wall replaces the typical residential fence.

At the same time, the brick wall also frames an indirect access to the front door, functioning as a privacy barrier while revealing slices of the interior to the public street.

The landscaping has been designed by Open Envelope Studio, with the front yard filled with plants that can grow in the Texas heat.

The dining table, with its centrally hung artistic pendant light, provides a separation between the kitchen and living area.
