This historic renovation / addition to a vintage Hyde Park bungalow that had fallen into disrepair works with the rich neighborhood context. An avid art collector, professional photographer and longtime Hyde Park resident, the client worked with us closely to create this elegant three bedroom residence and home studio. Her desires for a contemporary but also contextual project led to an interesting juxtaposition of historic exterior features surrounding a contemporary open plan and minimal interior detailing. Extending the floor plan, diverse exterior spaces include decks, screened porches and balconies to take advantage of seasonal differences under the extensive tree canopy. Other features included a 10,000 gallon rainwater collection system and a 5 star AEGB rating from Austin Energy.
