Pool - contemporary backyard pool idea in Austin

Ridgewood Residence

Nestled in the established yet evolving Rollingwood area, this modern five-star green home responds to the unique challenges and opportunities offered by an infill lot environment and the broader context of the neighborhood and Austin. The program goals required utilizing sustainable design elements while emphasizing casual entertaining and the indoor /outdoor lifestyle of the Owner. A corridor view to the North, a western rear exposure, and a need for privacy from neighboring houses, inspires in a "Y"-shaped concept that focuses primarily toward the side rather than the rear of the property. Carefully placed glazing and a marriage of interior and exterior materials transition smoothly inside and out, while the pool sits snug against the house to create drama and flow to the exterior rooms of the rear court. Existing trees, thick masonry walls, and deep roof overhangs buffer the sun, while sustainable selections and concepts including rainwater harvesting result in an environmentally-friendly home within a cost-conscious budget.
