Located on a scenic site between Hog Pen Creek and Lake Austin, the Hog Pen Creek Residence was built for a couple that wanted to use it as a training area for Ironman triathlons. The building’s layout follows the shape of the letter L and includes a series of covered porches and walkways that are linked to the home’s living areas.
The primary living space is in close proximity to the water and boasts two stories. It also comprises a master bedroom loft and is flanked by porches on two sides. It is cooled naturally by the lake’s breezes and benefits from shading from nearby oak trees. One of the master bedroom’s walls is actually a movable barn-like door that can be used to achieve extra privacy from the living room should the need arise. Depending on the needs of the residents, the Hog Pen Creek Residence can be used for both socialization and private relaxation purposes thanks to its incredible versatility. The home was designed by Lake Flato Architects and is located in Austin, Texas.
