midcentury-modern-home-exterior

Webber + Studio Architects is responsible for this remodel and addition project of a midcentury modern house located in Rollingwood, a city in Travis County, Texas. This house was originally designed in 1968 by famed mid-century architect A.D. Stenger. A family home for three daughters and a dog, the architect was enlisted to not only renovate the home but increase its size by double, adding an additional 1,500 square feet.

 The architects emulated the home’s original Japanese-inspired design while referencing other Stenger built houses in the area, including an A-frame just five houses away. The new design boasts a tasteful homage to a classic modern style, featuring a reinterpreted A-frame to the horizontal, low-slung original house.

SIZE: 1,500 square foot Remodel + 1,500 square foot Addition

AWARDS: AIA Homes Tour 2014, Qualified Remodeler, Master Design Awards 2016 Gold Award Whole House Remodel, Qualified Remodeler, Master Design Awards 2016 Judges Vision Award

Vertical wood and large timber details throughout nods to the homes Japanese-inspired roots while also capturing the low-tech design style of the original house. The original design was only a single story, however, the need for two children’s bedrooms demanded a second story addition to retain the modest backyard.

The second level addition was designed as an A-frame to increase attention to the strong horizontal character of the original design. A rooftop deck provides fantastic city views, while vertical wood shading provides shelter from the harsh morning and afternoon sun.

What We Love: This midcentury house features a stunning transformation with floor-to-ceiling windows and a fantastic A-frame roof design. Japanese inspiration has wound its way through the design to create a beautiful aesthetic. The continuous indoor-outdoor epoxy pebble flooring creates a harmonious look while helping to blur the boundaries between indoors and out.
