Contrastive mansion in San Antonio: Capps residence

Located in San Antonio, Texas, this architectural beauty was designed by Poteet Architects. Originally this place was nothing more than just a historic building that nobody really cared about. But with lots of work, it became a very beautiful place to live in. The building has been restored and an addition was also built at the backside of the house, which now features a kitchen on the first floor and a new master bathroom above that.

You could never suspect, just by looking at it, the extremely contemporary interior design that is hiding behind those walls. The owners are collectors of contemporary art so they’ve designed this place to suit their style and needs. All over the house you can admire some very beautiful art pieces, among with some other ones a little more playful.
