Unique modern design in Govalle

While it’s unclear what the hefty price tag for this new build in Govalle might indicate about the direction the neighborhood is going (or has already gone), there’s no denying that the the two-story duplex is a looker.

Designed and developed by Austin’s CoXist Studio, the home was dubbed the “Zig Zag Duplex” for its inventive design. The connected units are staggered so that they connect only at stairwells, and the second floor undulates in a manner that create different shadow patterns throughout the day, according to the designers. Large, sliding doors connect interiors to outdoor spaces, which are private to each unit and generously sized.

Inside, the 2,118-square-foot unit features wood, concrete, and hard tile floors as well as high-end and on-trend finishes and fixtures. The stucco home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three bathrooms. Located at 3110 Govalle Avenue, Unit B , it’s listed by Wes Womack of Womack Real Estate.
