Renovation and Addition work

We take great care and pride in remaining spaces for our clients. We take into account how you live in your current space, how you wish it to function and ways in which it can become more energy efficient. Some of our favorite spaces we've reimagined include the following projects.

  • 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.

  • Clarksville Remodel

    Clarksville Remodel

    This historical structure in Old West Austin is in a protected neighborhood planning area.  The challenge was to maintain a historical reference while meeting the needs to update and restore the duplex into two homes that would be comfortable and energy efficient to live in.

  • Expanded Cottage

    Expanded Cottage

    In the Bryker Woods section of central Austin, our client owns a 1940, 1,000 SF, two bedroom bungalow, owned by the family for decades. Starting a new family, they wanted to upgrade the home’s kitchen, laundry, living, bathroom, and bedroom areas, along with the MEP systems. The exterior character of the existing structure should stay intact and whatever new added should complement the existing house and be sensitive to the neighborhood.

  • Tarrytown Residence Renewed

    Tarrytown Residence Renewed

    What makes this home a unique is that it demonstrates a complete remodeling and updating on the interior from a home originally designed in 2000 with the “Craftsman” style in mind to the Modern style - while retaining many of the positive features of the original design by the owner/architect.

  • House On Bell Mountain

    House On Bell Mountain

    A client's request for an open floor plan that would blur the distinction between indoor & outdoor living areas while still providing a significant amount of privacy for the occupants brought about this distinctly contemporary design motif that is also healthy to live in, well constructed, and very energy efficient.

  • Central Austin Remodel

    Central Austin Remodel

    What's noteworthy about this central Austin remodel is that the “bones” of the original house were essentially left intact or recycled. There was a conscious effort to work with as much that was salvageable as we could while allowing for the lifestyle of the new owners. The Family Entrance porch, Garage, Carport, and existing floor plan were left intact. Existing wood floors were salvaged where possible. A few minor shifts in window locations and the addition of a door from the new Kitchen area to a proposed Deck was added. The success of this project was the result of finding the right balance between budget and the sustainable features incorporated into the home. By locating the stairwell and high windows properly, we were able to provide for passive cooling through thermal siphoning without adding additional cost to the client. Additionally, deep overhangs provide shading and an added layer of protection at doors and windows, protecting them from moisture infiltration and reducing future maintenance issues.
