Project's Summary

Pine House is a remarkable testament to the power of collaboration between the Client, Architect, and Builder. With a shared vision of creating an exceptional and one-of-a-kind home within a constrained budget, this project challenged the conventional norms of development in Austin. The result? A stunning 2,060 square foot residence that marries affordability with thoughtful design.

From the very beginning, the goal was clear - to craft an interesting and unique home without compromising on quality. To achieve this, the team behind Pine House ingeniously utilized affordable and easily accessible materials. By carefully assembling these materials, they allowed the architecture to express itself fully through form and rhythm. The end result is a harmonious blend of aesthetics and cost-effectiveness.

Undoubtedly, the site presented its own set of challenges, but rather than shying away, the team wholeheartedly embraced them. Situated on a corner lot, the project had to adhere to more stringent setbacks, leaving a mere 10 feet of buildable width along the alley. However, this constraint only fueled the team's creativity, resulting in a house that gracefully tapers down from its 19-foot width along its impressive 79-foot length.

Throughout the entire journey, the collaboration between the Client, Architect, and Builder was key. The process began with invaluable consultations with the Builder, ensuring a strong foundation for the project. From there, the craftsmanship of the finish carpenter brought the vision to life. Pine House stands as a testament to the fact that compelling architecture can be achieved even with reasonable means.

In the end, Pine House is not just a house. It is an architectural masterpiece born out of the synergy between the Client, Architect, and Builder. Faye and Walker architectural studio have once again demonstrated their prowess in creating extraordinary spaces. Pine House is a testament to their ability to transcend budgetary constraints and deliver a home that is both captivating and affordable.
