Halite House

This modern urban house in Austin’s Zilker neighborhood is a striking blend of architecture and nature. Nestled on a small, tree-filled lot, the design prioritizes preserving the existing tree canopy while maximizing land usage. The house is composed of cubic crystalline forms, creating an intriguing geometric composition.

To connect the indoors with the lush surroundings, the design incorporates plenty of glass, carefully positioned to ensure privacy. This balance allows residents to enjoy the greenery while maintaining a sense of seclusion. The result is a modern oasis that seamlessly integrates with the natural beauty of Austin’s Zilker neighborhood, where contemporary design meets urban tranquility.
