This contemporary custom home is nestled on a hill top overlooking the Texas Hill country. Site selection was focused on optimizing solar orientation, prevailing breezes, and mature vegetation. The client's affinity for mid-century modern with a "Palm Springs flair", privacy, green building principals, and operating cost concerns, ultimately drove the design process and completed solutions. By utilizing passive cooling design techniques specific to the micro climate of the site, "Texas approved" materials, best practice construction details, in conjunction with high efficiency HVAC, plumbing, and lighting systems, the U-V House is a home to be enjoyed for generations.
