Bowman Residence Outdoor Living contemporary patio
 

Bowman Residence Outdoor Living

The driving impetus for this Tarrytown residence was centered around creating a green and sustainable home. The owner-Architect collaboration was unique for this project in that the client was also the builder with a keen desire to incorporate LEED-centric principles to the design process. The original home on the lot was deconstructed piece by piece, with 95% of the materials either reused or reclaimed. The home is designed around the existing trees with the challenge of expanding the views, yet creating privacy from the street. The plan pivots around a central open living core that opens to the more private south corner of the lot. The glazing is maximized but restrained to control heat gain. The residence incorporates numerous features like a 5,000-gallon rainwater collection system, shading features, energy-efficient systems, spray-foam insulation and a material palette that helped the project achieve a five-star rating with the Austin Energy Green Building program.

These are Marvin doors and windows with wood screens. I'll look a little more into how they are finished out.

January 9, 2014
The 4 circular fire-pits along the back deck are spaced evenly between 5 circular tables angled on opposite sides of the fire-pits. Creating the visual shape of a "W" with fire-pits between the points. That arrangement allows 5 more tables to be added within the peaks of the "W" and outer edge (an upside "W" configuration that overlays the previous "W"), to accommodate nights where more desire to dine / sit outside. Total seating: 40. Beyond the fire-pits are couches and chairs with a similar feel as above but away from the house / cabin.
