Text description provided by the architects. A speculative development project that addresses the demands of rapid growth in Austin Texas on a low budget, while being environmentally conscious and architecturally progressive.

The project consists of two single family units on a standard 50'x150' infill lot in an eclectic single family neighborhood east Austin, within walking distance of the city center.

The project strives to be forward thinking and modern but sympathetic to its established neighbors in terms of scale and massing. The two unit project gives both units an independent and free standing ground floor footprint with clear and separate entrances to foster a sense of individuality and ownership of each unit. The project tries to achieve a balance of public and private space with private yards and a roof deck for additional outdoor space. The car is given special consideration and brought down the side of the site on a shared drive to the interior for security and to keep the street facing side of the project from becoming visually cluttered and overwhelmed by cars.

Overall construction costs were minimal and the project is detailed and designed in such a way as to elevate standard materials and construction methods to maximize their value.
