reed playhouse on broadway

Sq. Ft.: 1,600 Air Conditioned Space / East Austin, Texas


“Not-so-big-house” was the initial goal for a new residence in an established East Austin neighborhood. The architect designed a theater “playhouse” for a stage manager by night, high tech worker by day. Within mature pecan trees on a narrow corner lot, the design maximizes the benefits of shade, prevailing winds, privacy, and energy conservation.
