(5) Up in the Garden Oaks neighborhood, visit a home designed by Intexure Architects that demonstrates good design with a practical approach to real life solutions for modern life. A central axis divides the home into two halves separating the master and secondary bedrooms on the second floor and creating a circulation spine throughout the home. Windows are oriented to capture views and bring the exteriors in, including views to the pool which connects the home to the landscape. A custom fabricated stair and bespoke millwork details add warmth and character to the home.

(6) In midtown, see the recent renovation of a stunning loft in the Edge that embodies a minimalist urban aesthetic with colorful artistic interludes, completed by the Wendt Design Group.

(7) Finally, take a look inside another studioMET home, located just north of University Place, that is best described as an introverted courtyard. The entry sequence into the house includes a sky court, wraparound deck, garden, outdoor living space and pool. Massing for the house includes a separate double height volume at the front of the property for a guest suite and an L-shaped configuration for the main house containing the kitchen, dining room and living room in the long bar. Private spaces are amassed in the two-story volume of the short bar.
