Hog Pen Creek Residence: Expansive Austin Home with Modern Rustic Beauty

Expansive covered porches, walkways that weave their way through the home and connect with the landscape outside, and an informal ambiance that brings nature indoors; the Hog Pen Creek Residence has it all! Nestled on a lot that overlooks the convergence of the fabulous Lake Austin and the peaceful Hog Pen Creek, the exceptional home combines an unassuming rustic charm with modern design to shape a truly unique retreat. Designed by Lake Flato Architects to meet the homeowner’s training needs for the ironman triathlons, the beautiful residence seems to intertwine with the scenic countryside as it blurs the line between the interior and the world outside.

Hog Pen Creek Residence in Austin, Texas

Three mature oak trees around the house, along with the flood plain and the views outside, determined the orientation of the home. Metal, glass and wood are used extensively throughout the design, and one can clearly see a wonderful fusion of the rustic and the contemporary. The relaxing home easily switches between privacy and visual connectivity, with the outdoors using sliding barn-style doors, drapes and wooden slats. A series of walkways around the house connects the various rooms and the lovely porches to create a sense of unabated freedom.
