West Drive Residence by  James D. LaRue Architects:

Located on a very steep lot, this home provided a stiff challenge for the design staff. Contemporary throughout, this home is perched precariously on a bluff that overlooks Austin Country Club. With a 16′ high retaining wall, courtyard and Ipe wood entry bridge, this home is snuggled into the hillside while showing off an impressive contemporary physique to the commuters above and golfers below.

The bridged entry leads directly into a glass-walled Living area that overlooks the expansive golf course below. Located on a very steep lot, this house circuitously responds to the hillside landscape, allowing for amazing views from almost every room in the house.
