The house positions itself in the landscape along an existing cap rock, where the slope changes from a gentle to a steep descent. Perched at this transition on the site, the home commands prominent views of Lake Travis. 

The plan of the home is divided into three distinct areas: a public realm, master wing, and guest wing - all with their specific orientation to the site. From a gravel parking court, a locally-quarried stone wall guides visitors along the entry façade to the front door. The stone wall transitions to the interior, where the entry sequence reveals the panoramic view through a floor-to-ceiling window wall. 

An exaggerated 9-foot-deep eave runs the length of the back of the house, providing protection from the intense Texas sun. Extending from this deep shade, an infinity edge pool floats above the tree line and provides a foreground to the lake view beyond.
