Clayton&Little Architects
Designed as gallery, studio, and residence for an artist, this house takes inspiration from the owner’s love of cubist art. The program includes an upper level studio with ample north light, access to outdoor decks to the north and south, which offer panoramic views of East Austin. A gallery is housed on the main floor. A cool, monochromatic palette and spare aesthetic defines interior and exterior, schewing, at the owner’s request, any warming elements to provide a neutral backdrop for her art collection. Thus, finishes were selected to recede as well as for their longevity and low life scycle costs. Stair rails are steel, floors are sealed concrete and the base trim clear aluminum. Where walls are not exposed CMU, they are painted white. By design, the fireplace provides a singular source of warmth, the gas flame emanating from a bed of crushed glass, surrounded on three sides by a polished concrete hearth.

UIC Homes
This three bedroom home with an attached studio apartment was designed with a formal front elevation that responds to the adjacent structures in height and setback, while adding new textures with a custom rain screen façade in colors that draw their tones from the traditional bricks of the neighborhood. The home is organized around a courtyard, a private destination apart from the busy urban surroundings. The scale of the courtyard is reduced by stepping the building down to a one-story wing containing the living room and master bedroom, with an overhead door to allow for a dynamic indoor/outdoor relationship.

Stunning City-views anchor you to the urban hub; the nearby Mountain Preserve panorama calms the soul. The private pool is a sensory experience; providing an enclave that is both dramatic and serene.

Addition

Alloy Workshop
We were approached by a young couple to design and build an addition to their 1950’s concrete block house. Like many of our projects, the addition became more than a new living room and bedroom suite; it became an opportunity to create an outdoor room. As it was, the only connection to the backyard and outdoors was through a side door that bisected an already cramped kitchen. It became apparent early on that adding on to the back of the house was our best strategy and we offset our addition to the west side of the house in order to create an outdoor ‘room.’ From the existing house you step down to the new living room and walk out onto a elevated lawn which is created by two raised landscaping walls. The Owner’s bedroom suite is located above the new living room and became a sort of ‘tree house’ for the couple. Lowered horizontal windows facing East and West do not frame a particular view, but instead cut a slice through their surrounding neighborhood and beyond. Although we did not find a pot o’ gold buried in the walls or backyard, as our clients hoped; we were able to work within their budget and transform their house. The shower walls are recycled slate roof shingles which are accented by a green glass tile. A solar tube in the shower provides daylight which is reflected into the room through a full length mirror above the vanity.
