Situated in the City of Bellaire on a quiet cul-de-sac fronting a green reserve, the Will Jordan House allows for casual and comfortable indoor-outdoor living. Designed and built for an interior designer/real estate developer, a structural engineer and their small children, the house's first floor plan includes an open kitchen-dining-living space accented by an outdoor patio via a sliding wall of glass.
The massing volumes of stucco and cement planks are complemented by planes of warm brick. Mixing the building materials and architectural fixtures with the owners' vintage furniture collection melds into a palette of some things old and some things new with curated touches of copper, wood and blue.
