AIA Austin Homes Tour in October

AIA Austin is holding its annual Homes Tour the weekend of Oct. 2-3, 2010. This year’s self-guided tour includes 12 homes, featuring traditional and contemporary designs and new construction and renovation projects. For additional information, visit 
Peninsula Residence, designed by Fred Hubnik, AIA

Project Type: Renovation/New Construction
Square Footage: 6,000 sf Renovation/500 sf New Construction
Project Team: Fred Hubnik, AIA; Calvin Chen, Associate AIA; Thomas Bercy; Tom Torbjerg; Joseph Winkler

The Peninsula Residence is an extensive renovation using glass, steel, detailing, and light to adaptively reinvent the home, radically changing its interaction with the landscape. The “bones” of the original house were saved and completely re-organized, creating clean lines and a bold presence. A triangular pool extending to the boathouse echoes the water of Lake Austin and reflects the image of Mount Bonnell.

Stratford Drive House, designed by Dick Clark, AIA

Project Type: New Construction
Square Footage: 5,000 sf
Project Team: Dick Clark, AIA; Matt Garcia; Kevin Gallaugher; Suzi Dunn;
Karen Kopicki

This house takes an architecturally minimal approach, with simple massing, an understated material palette and large expanses of glass. The main space is configured for entertainment with a glass-encased living area and large sliding doors from the dining and pool rooms. The home offers spectacular views of the Austin skyline.

Westlake Drive House, designed by James LaRue, AIA

Project Type: New Construction
Square Footage: 4,722 sf
Project Team: James LaRue, AIA; Randall Ware; Emily Marks; Kyle McCollum

This contemporary Hill Country home was designed for a golf-loving family. The unique modern architecture of this Westlake home is complimented by spectacular furniture and art.
