West Lynn Residence

Studio Balcones designed a landscape for a significant remodel of a 1920s Old Enfield Austin home.

In collaboration with Jay Corder Architect, the design achieves an inventive spin on the Art-Deco architectural style, while also responding to the specific demands of a young family. By translating the architectural style into a planting palette with both native and adapted hardy plants suitable for Central Texas, the landscape creates a jewel-like setting that accessorizes and offsets the clean, white architecture. Intricate paving patterns and iron work add to the landscape beauty, and a children’s Secret Garden, swimming pool, and roof garden parterre allow the family to enjoy numerous outdoor spaces.
