This new build is phase two of a project that involves the restoration and renovation of four existing 1936 Calcasieu Cottages in Travis Heights. More information on phase one can be found here. The clients, a writer and an artist, were driven by the desire to preserve the character of the original cottages while creating a house that would accommodate multiple generations of family members and also allow them to work from home. To this end, each of the cottages was dedicated to a specific programmatic function, and two of them were connected to a new two story building that contains the living and sleeping quarters of the family.
