Location: Corpus Christi, Texas
Located in a neighborhood platted in the 30’s but built incrementally over decades through the 70’s, this house is designed to evoke the weight and substance of area houses built when masonry was more than veneer. Handmade Mexican brick, job-cast concrete lintels, copper and bronze railings and fascias, and composition shingles comprise the exterior palette. Patterned glass clerestories are designed with structural mullions to provide a continuous expanse of natural light into the kitchen and bathrooms. Floors, doors, and cabinets are milled from salvaged vertical grain pine timbers.
