Located on an urban infill lot in South Central Austin, the site’s biggest challenge was also one of its greatest assets, a gorgeous 150+ year old live oak tree. The solution was to create a taut multi-storied volume that features a dynamic interplay of different heights that engage and interact with the tree, tucking under and within the canopies that are defined by its outreaching branches.

 

The house is clad in Brazilian Redwood siding and corrugated weathering steel, which adds scale and texture. The wood cladding extends into the interior of the house, which also features dark chocolate bamboo floors, crisp white walls, meticulous custom-made cabinets, and clean detailing.
