  • Lost Pines Art Center and Sculpture Garden

    Lost Pines Art Center and Sculpture Garden

    In the center of downtown Bastrop, Texas, sits a city block that is home to the Powell Cotton Seed Mill, silos, and other outbuildings, built in the early 1900‘s. Over the years these buildings were used for many things, most recently a junk yard/auto reclamation shop.  The mill is a pole barn structure, with wood posts sunk into the ground, dirt floors, and old growth pine used to frame the building all covered with a corrugated metal skin.

    The local Bastrop Fine Arts Guild purchased the property with the intent of repurposing the site into the Lost Pines Art Center, a regional arts facility housing a gallery, offices, studios, a foundry, hot glass shop, ceramics, and gift shop.  Along with those uses, a large part of the grounds would be dedicated to green spaces to house gatherings and art shows. Due to the extreme deterioration of the Mill’s wooden structure, it will be disassembled with the material and corrugated metal skin reused into the new flagship gallery and offices.  The remaining existing buildings will be renovated.

  • Renovation with a View

    Renovation with a View

    This residence consisted of two side by side penthouse condominiums in an early 1960s era residential tower. The two units were efficiently connected with one unit dedicated to the clients’ living, dining, kitchen, and mezzanine spaces and the other to be used as a master suite and study. It was a unique accomplishment to functionally integrate the mezzanine level into the plan because it added several secondary bedrooms and an additional bathroom.

    Zen Gardens Way

    In the Steiner Ranch neighborhood of Northwest Austin our clients wanted to build a family home that would provide a comfortable backdrop for them to raise their two sons. They found the perfect property sitting at the edge of a ravine with great views that faced to the southeast. The set was staged for the new home to be with perfect orientation for the Central Texas climate.

  • Golfers Laboratory

    Golfers Laboratory

    This site specific home is laid out to efficiently work with the topography, orientation, views, and breezes of the Texas Hill-Country. Overhangs, awnings, and deep covered patios provide passive solutions to keeping direct sunlight from entering into the house while still allowing large window openings to connect to the outdoors.
