FRAMEwork House

Filed under: architecture,houston — abs1nthe @ 6:31 am

Cite’s Spring 2007 issue features a modern pre-fab dog-trot house called the FRAMEwork house. FRAMEwork Architecture’s members  are the creative minds behind this daring design. 

Blueprint of FRAMEwork Dog Trot House

Finding Houston architects doing innovative design takes a bit of work in this cash-flow oriented city (compared to Austin), but there is compelling Houston architecture out there.  The basic idea of the design is an open breezeway that cuts through the center of the house allowing wind to cool the area during the hot Texas summer. The breezeway makes the design modern–though the original design dates back to times before air-conditioning.

For about $138,000 you can buy a basic 1600 sf model with finishes and fixtures.  The house just screams for a family looking for a second home in the country.  If you’re that family, please invite me for a visit.
