LEON SPRINGS RESIDENCE
Leon Springs, TX
This 3,600 square-foot LEED Platinum-certified residence is a home for a professional couple in Leon Springs, Texas, near San Antonio. The clients wanted a sustainable home that celebrated the outdoors, was energy efficient, harvested rainwater, and provided room for their guests, both young and old. There are three main forms that combine to create several outdoor spaces where the clients enjoy morning coffee, outdoor meals, and relaxation. The home sits lightly on a sloped site, taking advantage of great views and solar orientation. The roofs slope with the site, creating a low profile and allowing rainwater to naturally feed the home’s 17,000-gallon collection system.
