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.
We’re both humbled and honored that our B Austin Community Project received a 2018 Austin Green Award at last week’s Awards Celebration. Now in its third year, the Austin Green Awards recognizes inspirational green building, landscape, and infrastructure projects in Central Texas. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and we also wanted to thank all our team members for their hard work on this project including:
Look for our Tarrytown Residence with Hudson Design Development and Rachel Horn Interiors in the April / May Issue of Austin Home Design and Décor Magazine. Our Tarrytown Residence makes a great #farmhousemodern statement. We expand on the how we interpret the specific style and how it fits with our broader view of modern architectural design in the article. Spreads from the piece can be found on both our Instagram and Facebook accounts as well.
Excited to have our practice profiled in the April / May Issue of Western Art and Architecture Magazine! The article, ‘Framing a Life’, overviews how our different backgrounds come together in a shared design philosophy as illustrated in our work. Featured are images from our Lakeway Residence, Hyde Park – Avenue D Residence and Hyde Park – Avenue F Residence.
Excited to share some pictures and an architectural video from our Goldenwood Residence; a whole house renovation and addition to an existing home in Driftwood, TX . The scope consisted of a complete interior gut of the existing kitchen, living and dining room, the addition of a new master suite at the ground level and a new landscaped entry concept at the front facade. The project reinvents the Texas vernacular with a clean modern aesthetic including custom built Pecan French Doors throughout, oil finished FSC certified white oak floors and limestone fireplaces.

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.
We’re excited to share these beautiful photos and video from our Zilker Residences. This contemporary architectural design, located just blocks from the Barton Springs Pool and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden, features two residences in the heart of Austin’s Zilker Neighborhood. Both units open out to private landscaped interior courtyards as well as second floor balconies with views to downtown. The exterior material palette consists of a vertical standing seam siding contrasted against a white washed, vertical cypress tongue and groove siding.
