8115 San Benito Way
built in 2012 by W2 Studio
Photography courtesy of Fred Meyer and Masako Fujinami.
This beautiful new home was recently finished in November 2012. It is a 5 bedroom, 4 bath
3,800 sq. ft. sustainable modern home built by W2 Studio with a 500 sq. ft. separate quarters
in the back. Its worldly owners have lived in Asia and Europe, and they have furnished their
home with bold pieces from travels abroad. This house has a very Zen feel with Asian gardens
on each side of the home. A combination of modern construction and warm textures works to
create the home’s spaces. The building is constructed using Insulated Concrete Forms which
create thick exterior walls. Steel framing is used to create large interior spans. The home's focus
is a large atrium space that connects the lower and upper levels. A floating roof plane caps
this main space and is separated from the walls by a continuous band of clerestory windows.
Some recycled materials used in the construction include antique wood flooring on the lower
level, milled from a 100 year-old family farm in Louisiana. Countertops from recycled bottles
were used, as well and reclaimed teak wood exterior trim. The house even has a safe room.

Photography courtesy of Fred Meyer and Masako Fujinami.
This is a beautiful two story mid-century modern 3,227 sq. ft. home remodeled by New Leaf
Construction in 2012. It is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath home that has been redesigned yet is still in
keeping with the mid-century modern aesthetic. This home features an open kitchen to the
living area with high end stainless steel appliances and a large island with a waterfall countertop.
Notice the designer back splash in the kitchen as well as the stand alone fireplace. This home
has wood flooring, ceramic tile and carpet throughout. The designer was not afraid to use color
and used a lot of glass tile in the master bath to give a retreat like feel to the room. The huge
game room, one bedroom and a bath were added upstairs.

9205 E Lake Highlands Dr
built in 2013 by W2 Studio
Photography courtesy of Fred Meyer and Masako Fujinami.
This home is a 2,500 sq. ft. simple modern construction actually built on the foundation of an existing
home. This home was recently finished in 2013 by W2 Studio. The ground floor footprint is from the
original structure and a second floor was added. Situated on a hill overlooking a park and White
Rock Lake, the owners wanted to create a calm setting that took advantage of the outdoor
spaces surrounding their home. Coarse, terra cotta brick of the original home is combined with antique
weathered siding of the new addition to create a simple, peaceful setting. A large roof terrace
provides an outdoor living space which overlooks the lake and skyline of downtown. The
upper floor and roof terrace are connected to the lower level by a large sunlit gallery and
stairwell. The backyard features a beautiful pool and hot tub with glass tile and an adjacent
stair-step landscape. W2 Studio worked with the owners to select much of the furniture
and artwork.
