What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Minimal and Soothing in Austin
The house has a single-story design in the front, but there are two stories in the back as it spreads out across a steep incline. "The building is modest, but it unfolds like a geode when you go inside," says Alter. He — along with partner Ernesto Cragnolino and architects Tim Whitehill, Russel Krepart, Matt Slusarek and Jessica Connolly — designed the house to avoid blocking the views or light of any other houses in the development.
John Hill added this to Regional Modern: Austin, Texas
Alterstudio is another Austin practice with a strong modern design sense. Their houses, like the pictured Scout Island Residence, have simple volumes with the utmost care given to the materials and its surface. Here we can see a garage covered in wood slats, a wood trellis, and brick boxes that are relieved of their flatness with projecting bricks.
Moving toward the front door, we can see that the lower two-thirds of the wall adjacent to the entry has a texture that appears to complement the wood slats.
Alterstudio's design for a house near Austin, Texas, has a courtyard created from the houses' being split into two parallel bars. From the entry and garage, the living area is the volume to the right of the glass walkway, and the bedrooms are beyond the volume on the left. The walkway then acts as the entry, while also defining one side of the courtyard.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Many Ways to Conceal a Garage
Adding siding to garage doors to achieve this flush look is a custom job but certainly is within the capabilities of any professional contractor you’d hire to complete the work. Rotating the garage at an oblique angle can make entering it from the street more convenient but backing out more difficult.
