Lake LBJ Retreat
This 3,000 sf vacation home sits at the heart of a small peninsula that projects onto Lake LBJ. Design inspiration came from the site’s previous life as a fish camp, as well as the expansive views, wind patterns and existing tree canopy. These elements directed a design vision focusing on exterior circulation and moments of outdoor living. Materials were chosen based on the evolution of a vernacular for a cabin on the lake. Durability and permanence were important requirements for the material selections, which include board formed concrete, exposed steel structural members, Rheinzink metal and ipe siding.
