This previously designed by Un.Box Studio, a small cabin with a very modern design in Lake Austin, Texas. This waterfront cottage is surrounded by cypress trees and a verdant lawn, sited in a beautiful on lakefront oasis – known affectionately as The Narrows – lies just a few miles outside of downtown Austin. ” The owners insisted on a simple, humble, yet unique cabin to host their family gatherings and quiet weekend retreats.” said the architects.
“This small cabin, nicknamed ‘Cousin Cabana’, needed to host multiple programs in a small space while maintaining a sense of openness. Only 480 sf, the cabin features a combined kitchen-living-dining room adjacent to a wood deck. We chose natural materials and methods that would be maintenance-free for years including an ipe wood rainscreen siding, custom floor-to-ceiling face-glazed steel windows and board-formed concrete planters.” explained the studio.
