This Rabb Glen house was designed to minimize the building footprint on a small lot in the bustling South Austin urban landscape, while offering spacious rooms and outdoor connections through large, punctuated fenestrations throughout.

The 3rd bedroom is cantilevered over the backyard, floating like a tree house, to create a shady retreat from the hot Texas sun. The third floor is designed to nest under the roof like a finished-out attic – adding a playroom and a 4th bedroom, while rendering surprising and unusual spaces that are sure to inspire the young denizens of the house.
