Aamodt / Plumb was commissioned to design a home for a young family on a beautiful site on Lake Austin with only one catch: an incredibly compressed 12-month schedule. “12 months is extremely fast!” notes Aamodt. “Twelve months made us realize that we had to think very differently about how to do this project. What we did was to redesign the process of building a house.”Save this picture!© Casey DunnThe architects built a complete Building Information Model (BIM) of the home in Revit before any construction happened. Then, to meet the tight schedule the young architects employed fast-tracking techniques typically used on large-scale projects and adapted them to the residential context where tolerances are much more demanding. They worked with Bensonwood, a high-tech sustainable timber company, to manufacture panelized sections of the house in their factory off-site. At the same time, all of the site-work and foundation work was performed on-site by Austin’s high-performance builder Risinger Homes. This significantly reduced the amount of time to construct the building envelope. Matt Risinger of Risinger homes commented: “We were able to frame the house in just two weeks. That’s pretty incredible for a 6,000 square foot custom home.” The factory fabrication also meant that the envelope of the house fit together so well that the house was approaching passive energy standards with no additional measures. The architects were left with an air-tight envelope and fully complete site-work in the same amount of time that a normal house might have had only the site-work or foundations completed.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house itself has an airy, relaxed feel that matches perfectly with the relaxed Austin vibe. Spaces blend with one another and views outside and to the lake beyond bring nature into the house. The house is divided into two wings: a private wing for the family to sleep and work in, and a public wing for dining, entertaining, and recreation. The split massing of the house allowed the architects to preserve all of the trees on the site and the house nestles around a mature live oak tree which adds to a sense of privacy and connection to nature.Save this picture!© Casey DunnOn the exterior of the house, the high performance timber panels are clad in Shou Sugi Ban charred Cyprus, an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood by charring and cooling the wood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPhyfP-qMM4 The black finish of the charred Cyprus is offset by a lightweight white steel roof that efficiently reflects the rays of the Texas sun away from the house keeping it cool during the summer months.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe architects, their builder, and fabricator deployed a novel use of prefabrication technology, and interior planning and organization, and traditional techniques to execute a high-end custom home that feels comfortable and effortless in a record amount of time.Save this picture!© Casey DunnProject gallerySee allShow lessThe New New York Skyline (Sunlight Not Included)Architecture NewsPeter Zumthor: “There’s Nothing I’m Not Interested In”Videos Share “COPY” Houses United States “COPY” Save this picture!© Casey Dunn+ 15 Share CopyHouses•Austin, United States Year:  ArchDaily Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb ArchitectsSave this projectSaveAustin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects Projects Area:  6000 ft² Area:  6000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architectscenter_img Year:  Risinger Homes Architects: Aamodt / Plumb Architects Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Casey DunnPhotographs:  Casey Dunn 2014 Builder: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/777901/austin-home-aamodt-plumb-architects Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/777901/austin-home-aamodt-plumb-architects Clipboard Photographs 2014 CopyAbout this officeAamodt / Plumb ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinUnited StatesPublished on November 30, 2015Cite: “Austin Home / Aamodt / Plumb Architects” 30 Nov 2015.
