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.
Comprised of one main living space and two private wings, this five bedroom home on Lake Austin offers spaces ideal for entertaining while maintaining cozy nooks expected in a rural retreat. Tall yet comfortable ceilings heights are consistent throughout the home’s private and semi-private areas. The living spaces open to 13’-4” ceilings, a precise dimension set by the 3’-4” x 3’-4” steel window grid. Simple and clean details give the home an elegant feel, while seamlessly blending inside and out. The outdoor living area looks out over Lake Austin and provides a connection to the interior of the home through the 1x6 wood soffit that extends into the heart of the home. Designed in collaboration with David Shiflet.
