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.
Designed as a concept for a large site along Barton Creek in Austin, TX , the home combines elements of traditional and contemporary design elements to create a hybrid aesthetic. Driven by the desires of the client, courtyard living and an oversized pool create an inner private sanctuary visible from most rooms of the house. Green walls, stone and stucco façades, large expansive steel and glass windows, and a flowing pool design open the inner courtyard to the living areas of the home. An attached, yet separated, outdoor living area creates a beautiful destination area from the living spaces which draws the users to the rear yard.
