Lakeside Residence Horseshoe Bay, Texas – best residential building – Brief Article
Locally mined stone materials were selected for their warmth, connection to the land, general aesthetic appeal, and environmentally friendly attributes. The “landscape wall” built of solid masonry shields the view of the house from the street and acts as a south facing trombe wall that collects heat during the clay and releases it to the inside in the cooler evening.
Dryden flagstone terraces contrast the sandstone. Exterior materials of stone and concrete are brought into the house to further emphasize the blending of inside and outside.
