FKA'S SCENIC DRIVE HOUSE FEATURED ON THE CRAN TOUR!
DECEMBER 3, 2015
The Scenic Drive residence was one of the original stone cottages in a lakeside pocket of west Austin. The new design attempts to retain the quirkiness and character of the existing cottage, while thoughtfully adding to it to create an intimately scaled modern home. Nestled into a compact and sloping site that features huge live oaks, the home connects to the outdoors with steel and glass boxes that break out of the simple massing of the cottage. The garage is bunkered into the site allowing for a rooftop deck and outdoor living space that sneaks views of Lake Austin.
The Custom Residential Architects Network (CRAN) is a resource for those that practice residential architecture. To view the full article at AIA Austin and learn more about the CRAN Tour click here.
PROGRESS ON SCENIC DRIVE
OCTOBER 9, 2015
Work continues on the Scenic Drive remodel and we are well on the way to being finished, with thanks to the team at Risher Martin Fine Homes. This board-formed concrete wall came from a collaboration with Mark Word Design on landscape, and we are excited about how it turned out. We like the contrast of the crisp lines of the concrete against the rubble stone facade that was preserved from the original home.
