This house embraces the context of its established south Austin neighborhood in form and material while also adopting sustainable design strategies and incorporating a open, modern plan. The traditional gable forms, an inset front porch, and horizontal siding reflect the character of the surrounding houses. Inside, an open plan kitchen, living and dining spaces share the ground floor a master suite. Upstairs, two bedrooms, a shared bath and an open playroom are tucked under the roof, efficiently adding space without adding a second story that would overwhelming the neighborhood context.
