Dick Clark Architecture presents us with this family retreat that overlooks Lake Travis, the largest of the Highland Lakes of Central Texas. Schematically, the project consists of two wings that define public and private spaces. A courtyard separates the two wings that are connected by a glass corridor that can be opened up to take advantage of gusts of fresh air.
A sandstone wall defines the public space, while a deep porch and wood exterior identifies the private bedrooms. Large overhangs, sweeping butterfly roofs and trellised walks respond to the central Texas climate.
