This modern home designed by iHouse combines a distinct industrial-style living area with a terrace garden that also holds a Jacuzzi a glass pergola and an outdoor lounge. The terrace garden is visually connected with the master bedroom and allows the homeowners to escape the rigors of a long and hard day at work each evening.
The residence combines a wide range of textures and finishes along with modern aesthetics and industrial overtones to shape a living environment that is exciting elegant and definitely distinct. At the heart of this rejuvenated structure are two central voids that bring natural light to the lower-level living area and create a breezy atmosphere indoors.

For most of us it is the ground floor of our home that holds the entrance and the living area with the top level holding the bedrooms and other private spaces. But the Cliff Dwelling nestled on a steep cliff next to Lake Austin flips this floor plan to suit the specific needs of the site and it is the rooftop garden retreat and entrance that steal the show here.
Green design is not always about cutting-edge technology that minimizes energy consumption and a multitude of gadgets that monitor your every move. The best sustainable home designs are those that cause minimal damage to the landscape in which they sit.
