Project Portfolio: Cherry Lane Residence

Excited to share views of our Cherry Lane Residence in Tarry Town with Glauser Building Company.

Our Cherry Lane Residence is a transformative whole-house renovation & addition to an existing single-story home in the Tarrytown Neighborhood of Central Austin. A family of 5 sought a modern, efficient design to fit their lifestyle while providing space to grow. The roof of the existing home was removed, the exterior envelope re-imagined and a new second-story addition was added to elevate the new spaces into the dense tree canopy of the site. Outdoor spaces engage the neighborhood and take advantage of the beautiful old-growth trees on the property while minimizing the impact of the building footprint on the site. Minimal detailing and challenging modern craftsmanship throughout the home allow the spatial harmonies to sing.

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.

Check out Paul Finkel’s lovely architectural photos from our Peak Lookout Residence completed with builder, Todd Fletcher of Peak Design Build LLC!

The Peak Lookout Residence is contemporary, luxury home located in Lakeway, TX. The residence is positioned on a gently sloping site and oriented towards distant views. The linear parti frames outdoor spaces both to the north and south of the residence and works with passive solar principles and breezes to allow for an efficient green design. This is a 5 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath residence with a 3 car garage and ample pool deck for entertaining and outdoor living. The material palette is quiet but elegant, consisting primarily of stucco, stained cedar accents and anodized RAM windows through out.

Come see our ‘Natural Unnatural’ at the Waller Creek Conservancy’s Creekshow 2015!

Natural Unnatural Creekshow 2015-1 Natural Unnatural Creekshow 2015-3 Natural Unnatural Creekshow 2015-2

We’re very excited to be one of five teams invited by the Waller Creek Conservancy  to participate in this year’s Creekshow, a nighttime event featuring illuminated installations on Austin’s Waller Creek.  Make sure to come see our installation between November 12th-21st on Waller Creek and see the Creekshow website for more event information.

‘Natural Unnatural’ Artist’s Statement:

A hidden network of inlets, storm drains, and ultimately the Waller Creek tunnel project are unnatural controls creating a city-wide water displacement grid. This concealed system seeks to control the natural processes of torrential rainstorms allowing for our habitation of this flood-prone area. Flowing water can be graceful and seductive but it can also be grotesque and terrifying. Perspective defines how we see this relationship and as we alter the built landscape this perspective changes. The Natural Unnatural aims to make visible this tenuous relationship between the natural chaos of water in an impervious urban environment during a large rain event, and the structured unnatural order of the manmade devices attempting to contain and direct it.

The scale of the Waller Creek tunnel project is staggering and largely invisible. Once complete, this underground tunnel system will carry 3.7 million gallons of water a minute, displacing rain in a flood event from the surrounding 28 acres of land in Central Austin. This displacement project will allow for Austin to engage this central creek in ways not previously possible. The Natural Unnatural highlights the flabbergasting scale of this endeavor. The sphere, simple and pure, a manmade geometry represents the controls of the tunnel system. At the size of a person the sphere presents a scale index of the tunnel volume. Making the invisible understandable and bringing the chaos to light.
