Texas Cottage by Nick Deaver. Austin, Texas
This House is the addition to an existing cottage situated in vibrant Austin neighborhood. The site had the original home set back from the street and bracketed by two large heritage oak trees, an active city drainage line that cut through the property, and a dry creek at the rear.
The owners of the cottage had previously worked with the architect and had asked for the design to allow for large gatherings, intimate respite, and to be Austin cool. They love collecting paintings and sculpture, and having music play throughout the home. Our design had to able to live and adjust to these collections and occupants. The design itself is aware of the neighboring residential context along with the needs of the owner and site.
