October 28, 2019 – This renovation and addition to an Austin, Texas home, originally done by a famous architect, was taken on by Clayton & Little to maintain the mid-century modern craft and history.

During the 1950s, architect Roland Roessner was teaching at the University of Texas and designing some of Austin’s most daring modern structures.

One of his more memorable houses, located on Balcones Drive, is notable for its prominently cantilevered concrete balcony perched above a long, sloping hillside, with Camp Mabry as its backyard. Though previously unacquainted with the period, new owners delved into all things mid-century modern and hired Clayton & Little to assist with a deliberate and sensitive renovation of this Austin treasure.
