Austin Texas Tower House

May 24th, 2011

When I think of Texas nowhere in that thought is green grass, water or large trees. Talk about a skewed perception of the state. Fortunately that has been renewed by this house in Austin built by Andersson Wise Architects. Ultimately it seems more like a lookout tower which only makes it cooler.

The reason for building in the style of a tower was to limit the environmental footprint and take advantage of the view over the water.
