while some construction projects can take years to be completed, ‘house in austin’ by vienna-based practice jadric architektur was built in only eight months. located in a suburban neighborhood of texas, the family home presents a range of different atmospheric conditions, achieved through various lighting and spatial organization.

 

private and secluded areas of the home are contrasted by shared communal volumes. consequently a matrix is formed, where the north-south axis features indoor and outdoor volumes that align themselves with a terraced slope toward the south. perpendicularly, the east-west axis is oriented with the movement of the sun, providing light for daily activities.

 

the dwelling is articulated around the pool at the rear of the property, positioned to amplify the light and views reflected from the water’s surface. the large provision of glazing at ground floor level blurs divisions of internal and external space allowing a fluid and smooth transition across the property.
