Inspiration for a modern exterior home remodel in Austin

Pivot Pad, Ignacio Salas-Humara ArchitectModern Exterior, Austin

1000sf new house with very tight budget. Owner had looked at prefab, but we found that in the end they were more expensive than to design & build a small house on site. The project is a composition of elements that are tied together by a strong circulation axis--the boardwalk--that organizes guest parking at one end, takes the visitor through the carport, across a Zen courtyard and to the front door. From there it proceeds through the house, across the back yard and terminates at a wood deck that cantilevers over a limestone bluff that overlooks the creek below and the nature preserve beyond.

    The client was fascinated by prefab houses, but could not afford one. I designed a conventionally-built compact house with steel siding to look similar to a prefab house. The cost was much less expensive than a pre-fab house.
