Specht Architects have completed the renovation of a 1955 suburban ranch home in Austin, Texas, that also included a new second storey addition.

The original house (designed by Page Sullivan Page in the 1950’s) was a sprawling single-story home that had small windows and was clad entirely in Texas limestone.

The updated house features a cantilevered second storey with walls of glass and a continuous planter wall.

The windows continue through to the bedroom and provide views of the planters and the trees in the distance.
