Rundell Place Renovation

Originally built in 1949 by Austin Architect A.D. Stenger, the 1,810-square-foot residence was gutted and renovated with updated building materials (Hardi-siding, TPO and metal roofs, wood floors, steel and glass clerestory).  The form of the structure stayed as originally designed with careful selection of finishes and materials to amalgamate mid-century modern and contemporary styles.  Originally the house was built around a 200-year-old Live Oak tree.  We integrated the tree into the design by surrounding it with glass, which also permitted an abundance of natural light to flood the living spaces.  A new HVAC system worked with the existing framing of the house to keep low-pitched roof lines.  New xeriscape landscaping complements the ΒΌ acre lot in Barton Hills.
