This south central-Austin house was designed for a couple wishing for a design that would support an active indoor/outdoor life. Early versions of the design featured flat roofs, but we were drawn to the idea of a simple elevated gable structure housing the bedrooms and opening onto the roof deck of the more public spaces below. At the same time the mass provides shade for the pool-deck and cover for the carport. Perhaps most of all, we wanted this form to be iconic, graphic and legible throughout, almost like a child’s drawing of a house.
