Cantilevered indoor/outdoor spaces and towering walls of glass give this Rollingwood home a tree house–like appeal.
Lake|Flato Architects associate Brian Comeaux describes the Austin suburb of Rollingwood as a hidden gem. “There’s a lot of activity there now, but it seemed like a secret for a long time,” he says. Within the laid-back enclave is one Austin couple’s double-wide lot on a horseshoe-shaped street. Dense with old oak trees, the property backs up to a creek, providing a leafy sanctuary despite being 10 minutes from bustling downtown.
The homeowners, who were looking for something “small but highly designed,” were intrigued by Lake|Flato’s modern aesthetic and quickly connected with the architect whom they credit with bringing their vision to life.
