A Guest House
New Construction
Austin, Tx

The need for space for visitors was the original driving factor for the house but it quickly became apparent that an oversized tree covered backyard with a beautiful pool was visually disconnected from the main house. The proposal opens up the back wall of the existing house and places the new guest house as a hinge between the house and the pool. A deck off the new house connects the yard to the pool deck. The minimal guest house packs a spacious master bedroom and large bathroom and a kitchen designed for entertaining. Clever storage in the living room and hallway maximizes the space for visiting family and children.
