Treetops House

Austin, Texas


This house is a major renovation and reconstruction of a simple ranch house built in 1959. We maintained the limestone-clad lower level, 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 large glass walls and high ceilings, is bright and expansive and features views across the city. A planter borders the glass walls, providing a continuous green edge to the living spaces within.
