The Greenbelt Overlook Residence is a home for a family of three overlooking the greenbelt in Austin, Texas.
At once serious and playful, this project embodies the competing influences guiding our client team. They described poles — rustic and modern, but not shabby chic or modern-rustic. Combined with a difficult site hemmed in between setbacks, protected trees and utility easements, the design proved a daunting challenge.
For our part, we think the results are among the best of our work we have seen built, serving as a riposte to our earlier budget-driven white-box projects. Along with the Hill Country Residence and the Paramount Residence, this is among the most detail-rich and materially robust projects we have completed to date. A culmination of our prior work and a sign-post to the future.
We have loved this house start to finish. Please come see it at the AIA Homes Tour 2019.
