Our Cherry Lane Residence is a transformative whole-house renovation & addition to an existing sin-gle-story home in the Tarrytown Neighborhood of Central Austin. A family of 5 sought a modern, effi-cient design to fit their lifestyle while providing space to grow. The roof of the existing home was re-moved, the exterior envelope re-imagined and a new second-story addition was added to elevate the new spaces into the dense tree canopy of the site. Outdoor spaces engage the neighborhood and take advantage of the beautiful old-growth trees on the property while minimizing the impact of the building footprint on the site. Minimal detailing and exquisite modern craftsmanship throughout the home allow the spatial harmonies to sing.
The transformation of a traditional single-story residence into a modern two-story residence is accen-tuated by a prominent ‘wrapper’ element. The front façade features a large overhang that transforms from roof, to wall, to overhang, to floor as a driving aesthetic force. It carries through to other facades, joining the complimentary parts as one unified design. The ‘wrapper’ is both aesthetic and functional by creating a dramatic street presence for the otherwise compact design and enabling generous out-door spaces within its embrace.
