Frank Farkash, Co-Founder of Moontower, clearly understands that new home renovation and construction relates to efficient footprints using the building envelope, spaces and technology. He says that the reaction to McMansions has been suburban living in smaller houses closer to amenities that allow for flexibilities in our life phases.
On trends: design flexibility is important for individual family lifestyles, thus usurping trends altogether - it’s more about consciously understanding true lifestyle needs from the beginning of any project. In fact, Frank believes that a successful project is based on championing the goals of his clients first and foremost.
"I do think the future of Austin architecture is just moving in a more sophisticated direction”.
Based on the influx of people to Austin we are seeing external global influences. Frank has a unique ability to work with both simple and more complex materials as he clearly stays on top of industry.
