RIVER HOUSE New Braunfels TX
Three siblings use this 2900sf home as a gathering point for their families. They asked that the design create a space that promotes and emphasizes connections 1) between the families, 2) to light and the surrounding landscape, and 3) to the river. Additionally, the house needed to be built on a very tight budget-- no simple feat for a site within the Guadalupe River Floodway. To achieve these demands, we focused design around standard materials, details, and components while emphasizing dramatic spatial configurations at connection points that would enhance shared moments between the families and the outdoors.
