DAKOTA MOUNTAIN Dripping Springs TX
Designed and built by LowDO on a three-acre property in the Texas hill country, the Dakota Mountain Residence is a homestead that pilots sustainability for contemporary lifestyles. A retired couple wanted to build a climate-responsive house tailored for their creative pursuits, and to host their children and grandchildren. The project emerged accordingly as a form of intermittent intra-family co-housing, interlocking two homes into a single block.
