The Tower House was designed by Andersson Wise Architects located along Lake Travis, the longest of the Highland Lakes, Texas. This modern house design has a new spirit of coastal home design with tall structure and glass wall. Called The Tower House, this inspiring coastal home design has two bedroom, and two bathroom. One such cabin sits on a slope rising from the water under a canopy of native oaks and cedars. The natural porch completed with an open plan kitchen, facing the water. In considering an addition to the original, stone lodge at this Lake Travis property, the notion of a tower was born out of several factors: taking advantage of views, minimizing the footprint on the site, and accommodating the rising flood plain elevation.
Two small bedrooms occupy the first and second floors. Above, a third level terrace opens to a panorama of the lake and distant rolling hills. On this terrace, some thirty feet above the ground, even the hottest summer afternoon can be enjoyed under a roof open to the prevailing breezes blowing in from the lake. The original stone cabin is now juxtaposed with a vertical tower of wood, rising up out of the forest and into the bright Texas sky. Wonderful home design in limited space without limited appearance
