SLIC Design Creates a Modern Glass House That Rises to the Treetops

Designed by main designer Sara Cukerbaum from SLIC design, this modern glass house lives high in the treetops with incredible views of downtown Austin, Texas, but it’s the inside of the house that makes it stand out. In addition to the beautiful curation of art, including a painting by Marc Chagall, the house has many nifty details that together give the house its modern feel.

The exterior is clad in three materials: onyx brick, white stucco, and Douglas fir. All three help the house blend in with its surroundings.

The house has a living area on the second floor with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that bring out the green of the surrounding trees. The large glass doors open to a staircase that leads to the roof. The antique curved acrylic sofa console purchased from Mecox Gardens is just one of the pieces Cukerbaum hand selected specifically for the home.

12-foot ceilings give the interiors an airy quality, while large windows and oversized glass pocket doors allow natural light to flood in.

This custom-made headboard with Schumacher wool satin extends to the ceiling of the room and gives it a sensational factor. A rectangular window cuts through to let in light while maintaining privacy with the help of the surrounding trees.

All bathrooms are fitted with modern tiles and maintain a sense of cohesion with their black and white color palette. Black hardware, black fittings and black cabinets underline the white interior.
