This residence responds to the client’s requirements for a house that “sits beautifully and confidently on the site.”
The design responds to a dramatic ridgetop setting, the site’s natural terracing, and expansive views of the Hill Country. The plan expresses the owner’s casual lifestyle and need for a variety of entertainment spaces strongly connected to the outdoors. Locally available materials were chosen for their regional appropriateness and were deployed and detailed in ways designed to further integrate the house into its natural settings.
The house comprises approximately 5,900 square feet of living space wrapped around a hillside courtyard and was constructed by Schatz Homes Inc. in the summer of 2005.
