DSRR House

As a house in Austin, Texas for New Yorkers we designed a large compound-style house with a detached garage and guest house separated through breezeways from the main massing.

The main house consists of two rectangular bars that slip past each other. The roof above is split at the peak, revealing two distinct architectural metal roofs.

The structure of the house in comprised of steel and wooden TGI joists in the roofplane, all sitting on a concrete slab foundation slightly elevated above the landscape.

The house incorporates aspects of a transparent open plan and also offers intimate moments of seclusion for relaxation off Dripping Springs Ranch Road, a grassy hill region just outside of the city of Austin.
