Location: Austin, Texas
Type: Single-family Renovation
The Vastu House is the gut renovation of a 1980's suburban house guided by Vastu principles. The kitchen and master bedroom were moved to the south side of the house to receive more solar exposure. This allowed for the living room to be expanded and opened up utilizing a new 18" deep LVL beam.
New energy-efficent windows replace their aluminum predecessors and the brick has been painted with a breathable masonry paint, updating the facade. The kitchen and bathrooms have been completely reimagined with new fixtures and finishes.
