This elegant home, set on a large tract of land in Austin's hill country, was designed to be highly energy efficient. Overhangs, awnings and deep covered patios keep direct sunlight from entering into—and overheating—the house.
This amazing home in Austin is a perfect showcase for imaginative architecture. Instead of doing the usual—letting the house fill the 50 by 150-foot single-family lot—the architects designed the residence to stretch along the length of the land. This allowed for a mix of different outdoor spaces that could be natural extensions off of individual rooms.
