Sited on a corner lot of the Alamo Heights neighborhood, overlooking the Olmos Basin with views of downtown, this innovative single-family residence was built upon the architect and client’s mutual respect for the environment.
With the foundation of sustainability as a responsible and moral obligation of built form, the challenge was to balance innovative sustainable technologies with time honored techniques while also drawing from and integrating with the historic context of the neighborhood. The single-story bedroom portions of the original 1948 ranch style home remained and were encapsulated with new multi-level public space additions.
