StengerArchitect David Webber updated a dark, compartmentalized home on a tree-filled quarter-acre lot in Austin, Texas, to feature an A-frame tower. Locally sourced cedar replaced painted wood siding on the exterior and carries into the interiors.

Here is another example of getting vertical in a dramatic fashion. In this remodel, Webber + Studio Architects cleverly attached a tower to the existing house to accommodate more bedrooms and a roof deck. The tower adds undeniable bling to the existing house, while keeping a modest footprint.See more of this remodel in AustinMore: 5 Midcentury Design Lessons for Modern-Day Living

5. Building Up in AustinWho lives here: Karen Knight and her three teenage daughtersLocation: Austin, TexasAtomic ranch renovations often preserve the home’s view from the street, or don’t go too far to change it. This renovation of a 1968 A.D. Stenger ranch in the Westlake Hills neighborhood of Austin, Texas, turned that philosophy on its head. A new tower addition rises high above the house, significantly altering its appearance. Architect David Webber worked with homeowner Karen Knight to honor the intent of the architect but to also make the house more livable for the family of four. This included creating a more natural-colored facade, converting many of the sliding glass doors into windows and adding a covered carport, in addition to the new A-frame tower in the back.

“After” photos by ArcherShot Photography except where notedAFTER: They kept the front door in the same place but removed the covered front entry and moved the front walk off-center, breaking the symmetrical front. Webber built a new carport, and the new addition projects up from the back of the house, further enhancing the asymmetrical entry. Knight and Webber wanted this home to be a warm, comfortable place for modern living, but they also wanted to preserve the essence of the home to pay homage to Stenger’s original design. “I wanted to do right by the house,” Knight says. They replaced the painted wood siding with stained locally sourced cedar that they then carried through the home’s interiors. “We really wanted to honor the woody materiality that was on the exterior of the original house, but we wanted to enrich it and make it more natural,” says Webber. A semitransparent Cabot stain on the exterior will keep the color pretty much as is; a low-VOC stain was used on the interior wood.

A Long Way to GoWhile Austin is definitely a city where a lot of new building is happening, not everyone is quick to shower the designs with praise. Alter himself doesn’t exactly gush at all the designs happening in his city. “Austin is late to this game,” he says. “Compared to where it was, it’s awesome. Compared to a real city, it’s just OK.” He doesn’t think Austin’s experimentation with architecture is on par with places like New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco, but he does see promise. “It’s exciting,” he says. “Do I wish it was more sophisticated? Sure. We don’t have a major art museum in town; we’re still lagging behind other cities.”

One gable over entire house, simple carport

What if we added a "carport" like this that would flow through to our garage with the addition of the beam to connect it to the house?

Make the front door really a focal then the other walls fall away

Front roofline incl clerestory windows. Not the tower portion.
