Pivot Pad, Ignacio Salas-Humara ArchitectModern Patio, Austin
Although the house itself is only 1000 square feet, the rear porch adds another 550 square feet of outdoor living space, making the house feel bigger. Large sliding glass doors open to the porch from every main room of the house. The columns are rusted steel. The stained cedar slats let in the breeze but provide privacy from neighbors. Stained cedar veneer plywood soffit. Light fixtures are handmade and were a gift from the owner's friend.
