Weird Homes Tour – Austin
The Keep stands as an artistically fortified high-end refuge for experimental artist, D. Warden. Warden has not only filled the home with his work but he has transformed every surface of the space. He has personally sculpted, plastered, acid-stained and epoxied everything from the translucent bullet-resistant front door to the medieval-themed backyard moat and drawbridge.
The Keep also primarily uses upcycled materials. Tons of recycled glass come from Garden-Ville. Over a hundred gallons of paint and materials came from Austin’s Recycle and Reuse Drop off Center. And to top it all off, Warded acquired hundreds of tons of boulder and rocks free on craigslist.
Come take a picture in the special effects studio in the professional blue-screen concave infinity cove. And don’t miss the two-story design workshop and art shack where the magic happens.
