The RoadRunner Residence aims to inject new life into a classic design. The flat-roofed single story house completed in 2014 looks as if it is floating, nestled comfortably within the trees of the Texas hill country. Having lived in Chicago for quite some time, the clients had the opportunity to visit and fall in love with the Farnsworth House by Mies Van der Rohe.
North Arrow Studio
North Arrow Studio’s work is refined, crafted with pride, and deceptively uncomplicated. Our spaces are beautiful and practical, and they reveal themselves slowly. Our work does not cry for attention, but instead speaks softly through a design language that strikes a balance between the familiar and what is new. We strive to find harmony and connectivity between the interior and exterior of the building and its environment.
We are influenced by the traditions of modern design, but our work always begins with an analysis of the unique characteristics of the site and the needs of our clients. We work with clients on all types of designs and budgets. Our success relies on our belief that effective design work is achieved through collaboration, respect and hard work. North Arrow Studio is based in Austin, Texas.
