Muskin Row Homes

Austin, Texas

Once home to Austin’s Robert Mueller Municipal Airport, the redevelopment known as Mueller is a 700-acre mixed-use urban community nearly 15,000 Austin residents call home. With more than 6,200 total residences, the Muskin Row Homes bring an understated Scandinavian flavor to the community with clean-gabled forms, cedar wood siding, covered front porches, and generous windows that engage at the street level. Light and airy plate steel awnings further the simplicity of the design while defining the entry to each home.

Upon entering each two-story unit, views throughout the home continue to a private courtyard that stands between the main house and a separate garage including the apartment above. This creates outdoor space and simultaneously allows natural light to penetrate throughout the main house’s ground floor. Upstairs, two bedrooms and a master suite are arranged around a central multi-purpose hall, where ample glazing allows natural light to fill bright spaces. Wood accents around a built-in desk and stairwell offer a complementary material palette to the white walls and exterior cedar siding. Expansive windows in the master suite offer views down into the courtyard and surrounding neighborhood beyond.
