1301 W 29th Street, Austin, TX 78703
Renovation / Addition

6,479 square feet

Tour Parking: No parking on 29th St. Park in the neighborhood or at the Senior Center across Lamar at 29th and Shoal Crest.

The new owners of this home wanted to refurbish, reconfigure, and expand the historic Bohn House to fit their modern lifestyle into this stylistically rare and iconic residence. Inspired from a 1937 film, the original architect designed the home to emulate its depiction of Shangri-La, using elements from the current time. The architects took a holistic approach, preserving the original character by using existing proportions and true-to-period craftsmanship to blend old and new; enhancing unique elements such as porthole windows, a curved glass solarium, and a circular door that mechanically operates at the touch of a button. The remodel reimagines the interior spaces to feel less segregated and expands the kitchen to create a new indoor and outdoor connection for a fresh feel.
