Today on TALKdesign I'm joined by Hugh Jefferson Randolph from Austin, Texas.
Hugh has been a guest on TALKdesign earlier this year where he discussed his background, his love af architecture and his design philosophy.
Today Hugh takes us through his AIA Austin tour house which happens to be his own home, where as a family they grow and play together.
There is so much you take for granted when you are in your own home and hearing Hugh peel back the layers of his home, the discoveries and stories that make the space unique are fascinating, one of the great things about a renovation is that you are working with history and the society, construction methods and trends of a past time, the older the home the more layers and discoveries you make.
Hugh shares secrets they unlocked in renovating their home and points to look out for while on the tour.
Hugh has had a life long passion for architecture. Since the age of seven he has known that designing buildings was his calling. A native of New Orleans, he started his career in Washington, DC. In 1991 he moved to Austin to study under renowned architect and educator Charles Moore. His practice since then has focused on residential design of all sizes and styles. When he’s not focusing on architecture he enjoys being Dad to his two sons, road trips, constantly renovating his 1939 ranch style house, his wife’s company and catchy pop music.
