All in the Details

Inspired by Galveston's rich architectural past, Michael and Brandan designed a Carpenter Gothic-style home, taking into consideration the necessary elevation requirements. "This isn't a typical house on stilts," Michael says. "We wanted to create a house that stays true to its style in scale while relating to the neighborhood." 


The duo maximized the number of windows in the project, flooding the house with light and ocean views. They also added a cupola, which brings light into the interiors and allows for natural ventilation when the doors and vents are open.
