During the 1950s, architect Roland Roessner was teaching at the University of Texas and designing some of Austin’s most daring modern structures. One of his more memorable houses, located on Balcones Drive, is notable for its prominent concrete beam balcony perched above a long, sloping hillside with Camp Mabry as its backyard. Though previously unacquainted with the period, new owners delved into all things mid-century modern with a deliberate and sensitive renovation of this Austin treasure. The necessity to enlarge the original footprint of the home became apparent early on. The addition of the office, utility room to the north and guest rooms to the south, are all purposefully set back from the original house and minimally noticeable from the street.
