Renovation and Addition

6,230 square feet

The owners of this house were attracted by the convenient location of this large wooded lot in West Austin, but the existing suburban house didn’t align with their modern aesthetic. The architects retained the core of the original structure and simplified the massing, removing extraneous gables and appendages. A light-filled living room and kitchen were added to the back of the house, opening to a new outdoor living space. The front was reimagined with a volume containing the master bedroom and gym, connecting to the main house with a dramatic steel and glass dining room bridge. The design brings a fresh material clarity to the house. Stucco covers the old brick, retaining the thickness of the masonry and providing a blank canvas for capturing shadows and light. The interior is simply defined with white walls, walnut casework, and slate floors, giving new life to this house for a young family with three active boys.
