Pine House is the result of a close collaboration between Client, Architect and Builder. From the outset, the primary goal was to create an interesting and unique home for a budget that challenged the development conventions of Austin. The result is a 2,060 SF residence for a young family of four, built for $129/SF materials and labor.
We used affordable, readily available materials and put them together thoughtfully, allowing the architecture to be more completely expressed though form and rhythm.
The site provided challenges, though they were roundly embraced. The corner lot mandated more stringent setbacks, leaving only 10 feet of buildable width along the alley. As a result the house is 19 feet wide tapering down along it's 79 foot length.
From valuable front end consultation with the Builder through unbelievable craftsmanship of the finish carpenter, Pine House is an example of compelling architecture for reasonable means.
