Townes Lane Residence

Austin, Texas


This house, which is currently under construction, is a major renovation and reconstruction of a simple ranch house built in 1959. We maintained the lower level, with its limestone cladding, and constructed a new second level that cantilevers out from this base.

The lower level is secluded and cozy, while the new upper level, with very large glass walls and high ceilings, is bright and expansive, with views across the city. A planter borders the glass walls, providing a continuous green edge to the living spaces within.
