Panorama House - Design/ Build. Austin, TX.

This was a design/ build project by Joel Webb Architecture. The primary idea was to build upward in order to take advantage of the panoramic views of Lake Travis, and the hill country. It is composed of a poured-in-place concrete structure with a roof deck, as well as cantilevered decks off of the front and back sides of the house in order to maximize use of the house to take in the beautiful surrounding landscape. It is clad in native Texas limestone, and sandstone.

Due in part to an almost 100% masonry deed restriction on the project, the exterior cladding is a combination of exposed concrete, a native mixed color limestone, and sandstone for the quoins.
