Slim House by Matt Fajkus Architecture

Slim House is a project designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture. Situated within a one-acre lot in Austin’s Tarry Trail neighborhood, the back yard of this existing 1933-vintage historical house was underutilized. The owners felt that the main drawbacks of the existing back yard were a general disconnection between each outdoor area and a general lack of relationship to the house proper. Therefore, the primary goal of the redesign was a scheme that would promote the use of the outdoor zones, with the pool as a centerpiece. Photography by Charles Davis Smith

Casa Ora by ZDA Zupelli Design Architettura

The project of “Casa Ora” designed by ZDA Zupelli Design Architettura was born from the intersection of two linear volumes that, following the directions of the area, define the particular angular shape of the house. The two volumes accommodate the sleeping area and the open-space living area, delimiting the outdoor area of the garden, creating a continuous view of the pool area. Thanks to the presence of large windows on this side, the visual limit between inside and outside is eliminated, flooding the various rooms of the house with natural light.
