House On Evans Avenue | Austin, Texas | Rick Black Architect
This very compact house was pushed up against the zoning setback of its found half lot in central Austin. The opportunity to build small gave us the chance to explore some ides about relationship between relative scale and absolute size, such as the balancing of intimate space with monumentally.
The house achieved a Five Star Rating from The Energy's Green Building Program. It is constructed with combination of structural steel and light gauge steel framing, clad with autoclave aerated concrete and metal siding. Interior finishes including stained, painted pine siding,carrera marble and magnesium oxide wallboard.
A ground source ( geothermal) heat pump air conditions the house with two wells of 190' deep each.
Description: 1073 sf /3 bed/1.5 bath residence
