Building around nature always seems to have more unique results than simply building over it. In the case of this house in South Central Austin, architect Chris Cobb designed around a 150 year old oak tree that stood directly in the center of the property. Each roof level tucks into the outreaching branches of the oak. The Brazilian Redwood siding of the house also contrasts nicely with the interior’s dark chocolate bamboo floors and white walls.
