Located in Austin's Zilker neighborhood, this house is situated along a steep arroyo on a double lot. Volumes varying in character and height interlock in a pinwheel fashion around an existing pool. The north-south volume, which contains the living room, kitchen, porch, and master suite, dominates the composition with tall ceilings, expansive windows, and broad overhangs. Lower, discreet volumes with large expanses of blank stucco sink into the ground to create a buffer from the street, like a landscape wall or earthwork. These smaller volumes contain additional bedrooms and utility spaces. A two-story accessory structure serves as a study and guest apartment suite.
