Lampasas, Texas 2012
The client wanted a modern, sculptural retirement home for their 85 acre lot in Lampasas, Texas. They said they’d like the home to look like
the bones of the earth coming up out of the ground
The main volume houses the master suite, living room, dining room and kitchen, while two guest bedrooms and a shared bath are in the detached second volume. These two volumes, along with a 3-car garage all sit underneath a sweeping metal roof. Not only a sculptural flourish, the roof provides shade and directs rain water to a central collection gutter. The use of local materials such as limestone, wood beams and grey metal keeps the house true to the Texas ranch house vernacular.
Triple Creek Ranch has been featured in Austin Urban Home, Luxury Home Quarterly, and the book Contemporary Southern Architects, 2014.
