Stekler House

Stekler Residence

This 1100 SF addition to a 1920’s bungalow in Central Austin wraps around an existing 150-year-old oak tree. The addition doubles the size of the existing house and preserves its 1920’s charm by leaving the existing house untouched while adding a modern dining area, study and master bedroom suite.

Stekler Residence

Large north facing windows and clerestories frame views of the impressive heritage tree and across the rooftops of the wooded single story neighborhood. The shape of the addition creates a large outdoor space under the tree while also preserving the tree’s critical root zone.

Since the lot fronts two streets the addition offers a second street entry and identity to the property. The client hosts large parties parties and guests arrive to the from the street servicing the new addition. The home has two identities one more traditional as seen from the western street and one more modern.
