Plan Description

Lately I’ve been working with Newcastle Homes of Austin, Texas on some interesting urban infill residential projects. Newcastle is successful at pairing lots in near the urban core with buyers who want vibrancy, neighborhood character, and proximity to the central city. As a rule these old lots are narrower than in other parts of the city, but thanks to careful design and planning, the houses they build are modern, energy efficient, appealing, and affordable. This plan is ideal for lots that are oriented with their long axis running north-south, with the street to the north and an alley to the south. But with its detached carport design and 30' house width, it's also easily adaptable to other site conditions. For warm climates, homes should have more exterior wall facing north (where there is infrequent direct sunlight, except early in the morning or late afternoons in midsummer), or south (where the high summer sun is easy to control with a roof overhang). Too much eastern and western exposure and the house will quickly heat up in summer, costing more to cool, or being uncomfortable, or both. This house is organized a C-shaped plan, with the two parallel main wings of the house oriented with their long axes running east and west, connected by a generous gallery that incorporates the stair. As a result, the compact square footage feels much bigger, thanks to the morning

Meet the Designer - Francois Levy

null - Houseplans.com
"I design homes for people living lightly on the earth, sustainably and in beauty."

Francois Levy designs buildings that capture the imagination, express regional beauty and a sense of place. His projects reflect their cultural and geographical context, and are accessible and comprehensible to the user rather than obeying a preconceived architectural agenda. Levy is particularly passionate about creating projects that eloquently express how we use and conserve energy and water, and inhabit their site. All his work - whether in architecture, teaching or research - investigates the intersection of design, technology, and sustainability. His architectural projects have attracted regional and national press, including features on HGTV and in magazines such as Dwell, This Old House and Natural Home.

Levy holds a BA in classics and philosophy from St John's College in Santa Fe, and two Masters degrees from The University of Texas at Austin, one in Architecture and the other in Engineering. He has taught digital design and environmental controls courses at UT Austin, UT San Antonio, and St. Edward's University. Levy has presented and lectured widely on CAD and BIM (building information modeling). He is the author of BIM in Small-Scale Sustainable Design (pictured below), published by Wiley. His current areas of research interest are sustainable architecture, BIM, cooling through passive ventilation, and space architecture, on which he has presented at international aerospace conferences.
