A Contemporary Remodel of a Mid-Century Modern Home

March 23, 2010

Kevin Pruitt, a film producer and director, has sent us photos and videos of the contemporary remodel that he completed on his mid-century modern home in Austin, Texas.

Kevin also used his skills as a director to create a really nice video of the home – here.

You can also watch a video of what it looked like before the remodel – here.


Originally built in 1967 by an eccentric Northwest Hills builder as his personal residence, this “Googie” influenced, mid century home is oriented to take advantage of the amazing views of the canyon wall over Bull Creek. This home was built for entertaining. From its floating lava rock fireplace that seats 8-12 people for dinner to its two great outdoor entertaining areas to its bedrooms that all open on to the kidney shaped swimming pool.
