Matt Fajkus Architecture has recently completed a house in Austin, Texas, for their clients who wanted to have a home that is warm and familiar, but also “feels like you are on vacation”.

The basis of the “Hewn House” design starts with a cabin’s simple form and materiality: a gable roof, a wood-clad body, a prominent fireplace that acts as the hearth, and integrated indoor-outdoor spaces.

Sliding glass doors connect the interiors to outdoor spaces, that showcase the exterior materials of the house, like the knotted cedar tongue & groove siding, and the dark gray shade of stucco that provides contrast to the wood.

A small covered porch provides one of the bedrooms with a private outdoor space, while inside, the furnishings have been kept minimal for a relaxed atmosphere.

In one of the bathrooms, clerestory windows and a frosted glass door add natural light to space, while a large vanity provides plenty of storage space.

There’s also an outdoor shower attached to a brick wall, that’s tucked away in the backyard.
