Project Portfolio: Avenue F Residence

Excited to share pictures of our latest North Hyde Park Residence on Avenue F with Peak Design Build LLC.

Clark | Richardson Architects was engaged to design a 2-bedroom, 2-bath main residence and detached guest house located in the North Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, Texas designed for a client couple living on-site in an existing dwelling. A modern approach, that remained respectful of the existing neighborhood fabric, was paramount at all stages of the project.

Residents Brian and Jessica desired a home that would be welcoming and obliging to their frequent visitors. Their North Hyde Park Residence was conceived as a transition node between exterior and interior realms. A generous covered front porch, extending as a carport canopy, frays the volumetric edges of the main entry. An intersecting volume continues the low profile across the street edge, reducing the impact of the two story main volume beyond. The entry sequence is bracketed by two existing trees thoughtfully preserved by the site placement of the building, allowing the wrapping form of the entry canopy to frame the entry court, accentuated further by shifts of material as the massing recedes.

Project Portfolio: Central Austin Residence

Austin Architect - Hyde Park Architect-16

Sharing these great images of our Central Austin Residence completed with Mezger Homes in North Hyde Park, Austin TX.

Clark Richardson Architects took a staged approach to the design by providing a front living space volume that was one story and gabled and a setback rear two-story bedroom volume. The two were connected by a covered screen porch and the secondary spaces of the house like the pantry, laundry and powder room. From the street, in true Hyde Park style, a long porch greets the neighborhood punctuated by more modern vertical windows which penetrate the painted brick portion of the facade up into the vaulted space of the front living room as dormers.
