Bellaire Porch House


Bellaire, Texas

A family home in an urban Houston community is based on the Lake/Flato Porch House, customized for the specific needs of the family. Living and sleeping wings wrap and define courtyards to maximize indoor/outdoor connections and outdoor living. High sustainability goals were key to material and systems selection, and LEED Certification is in progress.
