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.
Sited on a hill with a view, this modern interpretation of a Texan Mid-Century house is a concept project for a site near Bee Cave, Texas. Two long bar forms perpendicular to one another create interesting visual massing with voids and transparency through windows and materials. A key feature to the rear living area is the pool which meanders in the outdoor living area, which is accessible by stepping stones. Cut limestone, stained wood and paint grip metal provide a timeless color scheme for years to come.
