Acute Addition – An Expanded & Updated Residence in Austin, Texas
Turquoise backsplash tile from Fire Clay Tile adds a happy dash of color in a compact yet spacious kitchen with locally milled Texas walnut flooring from Hewn.
Creativity from Constraints
Located on a small triangular lot near Bull Creek, the house addition had to comply with regulations that limit the size of the house by embracing restrictions rather than fighting them.
The areas are tied together by outdoor light piercing through clerestory windows at points of connection.
Down the Hall
Tall gable ceilings and new roof geometry offset the original interior from the addition
The addition features compressed, cypress-lined glassy spaces that articulate the idea of new versus old.
White and Bright
A bright soaking tub and shiny fixtures are accentuated by ceiling level natural light while privacy is preserved with frosted glass.
