Lake House
Austin, TX

This structure, located on the steeply sloped bank of Lake Austin, is designed to celebrate downtime. The simple, elegant building rises above the water, resting on the surface like a water skater. And like the surface-skimming insect, this off-the-grid domicile exerts a minimal impact on its surroundings.

As part of a residential estate in construction, Andersson-Wise was asked to conceive of a half-mile pathway from the site of the main residence across a deep ravine to an opposing riddling and finally down to a boathouse located on Lake Austin below.
