Delights in living small in Central Austin

A tightly composed Auxiliary Dwelling Unit elegantly expresses the delights of living small – while helping to expand density options within a verdant neighborhood.

The site, constrained by strict municipal guidelines and an existing rental home, presented a multitude of challenges. The response is a spirited design that creatively combines efficiency and sophistication within 850 square feet. Full-height glazed walls open the downstairs interior with profuse natural light to showcase an exquisitely crafted poured-in-place concrete wall running the length of the house, extending beyond the enclosure to screen a spacious patio. The second floor provides a respite of two bedrooms and a shared bath. Full site development, from curb to back fence, complements the ideal of a relaxed indoor/outdoor lifestyle amidst the emergent density of central Austin.
