With my client and friend @gogokeith who won a @preservationaustin merit award for her #anniestproj home we worked on together. Thanks Georgia for making this project so fun and to Preservation Austin for the honor!
Loving this before & after post of #southillproj by @sarahwittenbraker today... almost forgot how dark and dreary that 1960s kitchen was before we got our hands on it! Photo by @kilpat #repost@sarahwittenbraker
Chilly weather... Let’s soup it up. 🍵
Thanks @kilpat for this shot of our kitchen!

Another custom tile pattern pic from #newyorkaveproj . So happy with how all of the patterns turned out but have a slight preference for the calm greens of the garage apt bath 💚💚💚 @txconstruct
#newyorkaveproj clients requested a new bungalow-style house that respects the original fabric of its east Austin neighborhood...I was interested in designing a modernized bungalow that felt more open, spacious, and connected to the landscape... the final result is a #mullethouse of sorts...business in the front (shown here) and party in the back. Several people have asked if this project is a remodel, which I think is a compliment? 🤔Can’t wait to see the landscape installed; designed by @shademakerstudio! Photo by @sidneywilderphotography
Be sure to check out @sarahwittenbraker ‘s super fabulous interior design work at #southillproj featured on @dominomag today as well as in the current issue! Bravo Sarah! 👏🏻 I had a blast working as your architect on this project! #SOdomino
Ready to get something cooking in here! #newyorkaveproj 📷@sidneywilderphotography
Balcony deets. Could definitely hang out here for a while @Txconstruct #newyorkaveproj 📷@Sidneywilder
#newyorkaveproj garage apartment window strategy: high south-facing windows provide privacy for the main house, and a large opening on the east side provides big views towards a cluster of pecan trees. 💚🌿
Excited about how our custom tile patterns turned out at #newyorkaveproj Here’s a preview of one of them...We were going for a vintage but modern look for this new bungalow with a modern twist! Photo by @sidneywilder
#newyorkaveproj house and ADU passed their final inspections today! Now it’s move in time. So thrilled the clients were up for painting the floor! 😍 More pre-furniture sneak peaks to come soon...stay tuned!
Excited to announce that #anniestproj has won a 2018 Preservation Merit Award for Addition! Many thanks to @preservationaustin for the support and to @gogokeith for making this project an extra fun one! See more pics of the project at link in profile.

This month marks 3 years of the (official) existence of Elizabeth Baird Architecture & Design and the busiest year yet! Feeling grateful for the opportunity to continue to work with kind and talented collaborators, craftspeople, and clients in a city that values Design. Many thanks to all who have been supportive of my little biz so far; I’m excited to see what the next year brings!
Went to the continuing ed summer conference put on by @aiaaustin last week and was blown away by this beautiful mural I didn’t know even existed underground at the UT Executive Education center... tried to take a photo of it but this one is much better...keep up the good work @landmarksut @joseparla @lakeflato ! 👏🏻 #Repost @landmarksut

Last but not least a #beforeandafter sneak peak of the back of the #evastreetproj ...so much more connected to the outdoors and ready for entertaining! 🍾Can’t wait to see the final furnished product. Thanks again to the whole project team @rockafire_explosion @saraoswaltstylist @srd_builder @shademakerstudio @fortstructures @yardfarmatx 💪🏻
More tile fun for #friyay! Sneak peak of new master suite shower (with a treetop view) in the converted attic at #evastreetproj 🍊🌿 @srd_builder @saraoswaltstylist @rockafire_explosion
#evastreetproj is only one block from Austin’s funky South Congress Ave, so it only seemed appropriate to inject some bold color and personality throughout this project; including the bathrooms! Beautiful @fireclaytile helped make our monochromatic vision a reality at the new and improved downstairs bathroom! #nomoreglassblocks
@saraoswaltstylist @srd_builder @rockafire_explosion
Keeping the #evastreetproj before & afters coming...here’s the new kitchen (with much more light and connection to the backyard) contrasted with the old kitchen... We kept a nod to the old black & white floors 😉🖤⬜️
Another #evastreetproj before and after...view from the living room through the old dining room to the kitchen...remembering how dark and disconnected from the backyard it was previously! @saraoswaltstylist @srd_builder @fortstructures
A little before & after sneak peak of our project currently wrapping up on Eva Street...it has been so fun to help breathe new life (and more space) into this old Austin bungalow with fellow collaborators @rockafire_explosion @saraoswaltstylist @shademakerstudio @srd_builder & @yardfarmatx #evastreetproj
I work on other people’s houses so much I tend to neglect my own... when I do stop and really take a look at it I always want to redo the entire place! But tonight I sat in a different chair and found myself actually enjoying the view 🤓#stillneedanewcouchthough @bludot 😉
