High Road

http://leapstructures.com/The High Road House is a commissioned project in Westlake Hills, a small incorporated city located in the hills of west Austin, Texas. The project sits atop a precipitous bluff overlooking the hills west of town. The striking bluff site affords a number of distinct experiences—and our client requested a house for entertaining and living that could be (at its disparate levels), a private nest, a party house spilling onto a pool deck, and a tree house privileging the expansive views.

The house is, in the end, a study in opposing influences: minimal but warm, open but private, sunlit but shaded, unassuming but dramatic. Decisive and sophisticated, our client has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to seeing this striking project built.
