Stratford Creek Rambler is a project designed by Matt Garcia Design. This is a 500sf addition to the firm’s first major commission. Surrounded in nature, the Rambler provides the owners with a little more room to spread out and a space to disconnect and unwind. Taking advantage of the steep site, the addition is set a full level below the house, providing a strong connection with the active creek below. Photography by Casey Dunn.
The roof of the addition becomes a large green living area and extension of the original wood deck. An outdoor shower gives the owners a spot to rinse off after a long run or bike at the nearby Lady Bird Hike and Bike trail. MGD also served as General Contractor on this project, working closely with some of Austin’s most talented fabricators and craftsmen.
