Dallas-based studio Cunningham Architects has completed the Wimberley House project in 2010.
This 5,000 square foot contemporary residence is located in Wimberley, a small town in Hays County, Texas, USA.
Wimberley House by Cunningham Architects:
“Nestled on the edge of a bluff in the Texas hill country, the Wimberley residence quietly sits among the brush and trees, providing a peaceful respite for its inhabitants.
An “L” plan effectively separates the bedroom wing from the more public kitchen/living/dining room wing. As such, the house essentially is two discrete boxes, one of glass, and the other of stained cement fiber board, indicative of their respective functions.
The roof deck is capable of hosting large family gatherings, while affording expansive views of the surrounding area. It also acts as a rain water harvesting surface for the on-site collection system.
As an exercise in sustainable building, the house utilizes energy efficient construction techniques as well as local resources and building materials.”
