JW Stoddard & Associates is a creative design firm in Austin, TX specializing in residential design.
Committed to creating a collaborative process and site-specific designs, we strive to create homes that embody three beliefs: a simple approach, practical planning, and beauty. Our goal is to create timeless spaces that merge our client’s wishes with the unique qualities of their site.
The design process is rarely straightforward, which is why listening to your needs, goals, and wishes is a key component to the design process. The strong respectful relationship we build with our clients provides the framework as we work together to develop a one-of-a-kind design that maximizes your home site’s potential.
Design, at its core, needs to make sense. We believe homes should be just that – a comfortable and practical place to live your best life, not a museum where form is more important than function. Our designs are tailored to maximize livability, with special emphasis placed on developing functional and efficient floorplans.
We work within a variety of styles by embracing the core principles of design: timeless details, balanced proportion, and unified design. Whether it’s a sprawling rustic ranch or a mid-century bungalow, all JW Stoddard & Associates designs reflect a common goal: to create a home that is beautiful, harmonious, and reflective of our collaborative vision.
Wanting a fresh feel for their newly purchased contemporary home., the clients asked for a wine cellar, a media room that could be closed off, and a food and beverage bar. Through much discussion, it was decided to reuse the unused storage closet under the existing stairway for the wine cellar. This created an unusual and unexpected wine hub adjacent to the Kitchen. With the addition of a new fireplace and shelving, the once cold-feeling media room was transformed into a cozy lounge for movie viewing. The finished house now has all the modern amenities for effortless entertaining and easy living. Designed in collaboration with David Shiflet.
