Located in Austin, Texas, the Strass Residence is a 2,924 square foot, L-shaped home designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture. The design of the house is such that it lives harmoniously amongst the other houses in the neighborhood, while giving the homeowners the modern home they desired.
The rear of the home gives way to a two-story private wing that was built away from the front of the house to keep that facade minimized.
Right in the crook of the L-shape is an old tree that was already there and kept protected.
The main living space is large and open, leading right into the backyard via massive sliding glass doors. It gives the illusion of an even bigger interior and keeps the inside filled with light.
The slanted roof line creates a double height ceiling in the open kitchen area.
