Residence 1414 Renovation in Austin, Texas by Miró Rivera Architects

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Miró Rivera Architects

This project consisted of a complete renovation of a house located in a historic neighborhood. The original 1940’s house suffered an unfortunate addition in the 1980’s. The main goals of the project were to restore the house of the 40’s vocabulary on the exterior while transforming the interiors to bring more light and provide a better connection with a fantastic backyard. A simple material palette was used to maintain a balance between the traditional aspects of the original house and the modern updates.
