Lesem House by Stern and Bucek Architects
“Built on two side-by-side lots in Houston’s Southampton neighborhood, this house was planned for a multi-generational family of six. Each first-floor living space opens onto one of three courtyards, providing seamless connections to generous outdoor spaces with ample privacy.
At the heart of the house, the kitchen on one side and the family room on the other both open to an outdoor kitchen and pool courtyard through glass and screen doors that pocket into the walls. The intersecting volumes of the structure are defined discretely in brick, a rain-screen of clear sealed cypress plank and zinc panels. The bright interiors are enriched with deeply colored hardwood floors and a combination of lacquer painted cabinets and natural white oak and teak veneer cabinets.”
