House S, Westcliff Ridge by Daffonchio and Associates Architects

House S, Westcliff Ridge is a project designed by Daffonchio and Associates Architects. The brief was to renovate and substantially extend an old, heritage house.

Pavilions by Sparks Architects

Pavilions is a project designed by Sparks Architects. Dividing the plan into two ‘pavilions’ linked by a generous breezeway space enables natural light and ventilation into the south, as well as north, parts of the house. This also provides a simple circulation area between the various rooms, and levels. Living areas are on the upper floor which enjoys views over the dunes to the ocean; the bedrooms and library are located on the more private and protected ground floor which is tucked in behind the dunal vegetation.

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
