Alterstudio (home in Texas)

Built from locally sourced cypress - the client's brief was that none of the site's existing trees were to be removed.

Thus the building sits among the landscape.

Cut-outs in the roof overhang and decking allow the mature trees to poke through the structure.

The natural landscaping further enhances the relationship between the home and the surrounding site.

The architecture speaks of the late modern approach - with clean lines, subtle material changes and curving walls.
