Looking to plant down some roots in Houston, Texas, this young traveling family reached out to StudioMET Architects to design and build a home in Spring Valley. Their desire to save a large oak tree in the middle of the property inspired the design’s central courtyard.
A cabana connects the house with a pool house, while adding an outdoor living room, kitchen, and dining room, all of which surround the pool.
Walls of glass in the kitchen, dining, and living room makes way for perfect views of the saved tree, yard and pool.
The master bedroom is located on the main floor, while the additional bedrooms are on second floor.
