Located on a steep site in Westlake Hills, the Terrace Mountain House sits just outside downtown Austin, Texas, providing its inhabitants a spectacular view of the downtown core.

Although it's just outside the city, the Terrace Mountain House is set well off of the street atop tree-covered hills, providing just enough privacy. The undaunted design of this bungalow-style home is undeniably stunning due to its villa-like look.

Implications - As the urban population in society continues to rise, more and more individuals are experiencing a sense of disconnection with nature. Businesses with products that are able to restore that connection or close-knit relationship between consumers and the environment will see big returns.
