The Texas Cantilever is a cost-efficient, formally singular and green design-build residence. A compactly organized set of conditioned spaces also yields covered and open outdoor spaces – resulting in outstanding feeling of being either in the sky or in nature when inside the home.
The project also incorporated digital technologies which were leveraged to both efficiently fabricate and erect the primary structural steel, as well as to design and document the 3-dimensional “Iron Turtle”.
The Texas Cantilever is an Austin home for a University of Texas School of Architecture alumnus designed and built by another alumnus. It is a cost-efficient, formally singular and green construction.
In addition to a compact 2400 s.f. of conditioned interior space there is 1000 s.f. in the covered space on the ground floor and in the master bedroom porch, as well as 800 s.f. of outdoor deck space on the second floor.
