Architecture & Design of Central Texas
“Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context – a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.”

eeesh not a fan of this one. this photo is lovely, but having lived on this street i always thought it was a blight on the neighborhood. it looks like a womens prison to me, and the duplex connection is awkward and obvious. i love imaginative architecture but this building is a miss. it never seemed to fit into the rest of the hood. and i’m not sure where it would make sense, honestly.
i question the materials that were used in construction. some of the exterior walls look dented. the garden containers shifted and are slanty now.
sorry to sound so negative.
