12 ORIGINALS

Careful renovations and new, open interior spaces revive the spirit of this historic 1885 farmhouse and saved it from re-incarnation as a Mc Mansion. By re-establishing connections to the exterior and revealing its original character, the architect created a home visually and contextually connected to its old San Antonio neighborhood.

A porte-cochere accesses the recreated traditional back-door entrance. Inside, the foyer links to the central hall via a gallery defined by relocated stairs adjacent to bright living spaces. A second floor gallery links bedrooms that open onto generous decks. Here, the dense oak tree canopies create a tree-house experience.

A new solarium looks out at a stand of live oaks and functions as a sentry lantern, spilling warm light into the yard, the entry, and the road beyond.
