Sam Houston House
Austin, Texas

This addition to a house perched high above Lake Austin opens to expansive views while offering privacy and many opportunities for indoor - outdoor connections. To retain the fabric of its North Austin neighborhood, most of the modern addition is located to the rear, where an Ipe deck runs the length of the house, offering a secluded niche off the guest bedroom, a dining deck, and a balcony off the master bedroom. A wall of glass opens the double height living room to the deck, while a catwalk and open loft enhance the openness of the clean interiors accented with details in steel, concrete, and wood. This project was featured on the 2008 AIA Austin Homes Tour.
