Westlake Homestead is an old residence situated in the western part of Austin, Texas. Its structure has recently been redesigned and new compartments were added by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture. The old architectural structure was modified by adding a gourmet kitchen, an enlarged master closet, a laundry room, a powder room, and a bridge. The house has also been improved by an upgraded geothermal air-conditioning system. The front door terrace has been extended to allow a better use, including open air meals. Adding an extra structure in a rectangular shape made possible the compartmentation of some bedrooms, an exercise room, a family room and, at ground floor, of a garage and a beautiful garden.

The interior of the house is characterised by modern finishes and decorations, the design being a contemporary one with rustic accents, which offers a warm athmosphere and an extra comfort. This new side of the house is continued by a swiming pool which invites you to enjoy the sun while relaxing on chaise longues. Westlake Homestead is situated on an ascendant lot and the new structure was placed so that it offers a spectacular view of the city center. The materials that were used to build it consisted of concrete as base, glass and metal. Having large, integrated in the walls, windows, the residence is visually connected to surrounding nature and to the wood, which is a relaxing and full of freshness environment.
