The West Lake Hills Residence was designed to preserve and nestle into the lush live oak canopy and rolling hills of West Lake Hills in Austin, Texas. Designed by Specht Harpman, code and permitting regulations required the original slab and certain walls to be reused. The new house is articulated by cantilevered volumes, ribbon windows, two roof decks, a green roof and an infinity edge pool, carefully weaving around the existing trees, while large glass expanses open the house to the dramatic landscape beyond. The division between inside and out is purposefully blurred to take advantage of the spectacular natural setting.
