Cedar Park, Texas
An abandoned shed lost in a thicket of cedar and live oaks was set on a modern path by a novice builder and architect friend who were inspired to restore the neglected landscape and build a home belonging to it.
Interiors are designed as extensions of the outdoors with screen doors and casement windows providing cross ventilation. The kitchen and dining room serve as a breezeway between entry and entertaining porches. Skylights diffuse natural light and a modern composition of windows frame views and invite observers to experience the sites natural beauty.
Important aspects of the new complex are a companion works studio, a cool limestone den, and porches facing morning, noon, and night.
