Mueller Parade Home
This fresh, Austin-unique design maximizes its potential to respond to solar and climate considerations by locating a first floor screened porch on the prevailing breeze side of the home and a stair tower on the opposite side. This provides a passive thermal siphoning strategy for natural cooling and ventilation of the home. Sleeping areas are located upstairs with living spaces downstairs to allow for energy efficient zoning of air conditioning systems. The backyard space is maximized by blurring the lines between inside and outside. The outdoor screened porch and carport both serve as transitional living areas that connect and extend the yard and house for multiple uses and entertaining. A generous front porch connects the home to the public street and sidewalk with stunning views of Lake Park.
