Texas Lake Retreat House

A Texas farmhouse and guest house located in the rolling soft hills and low woods between Houston and Austin that takes advantage of it's lovey wooded site overlooking a pond, this project focuses on a refined, yet casual indoor-outdoor living style. The exposed steel frame recalls agricultural utility structures and is expressed along with low horizontal stepped cedar siding and a giant, broad, sheltering metal roof .
Project Year: 2016
Country: United States
