Opening Of Lakeline Station Apartments

April 28, 2017


We are honored to have been the architects for the Lakeline Station Apartments, which just celebrated its Grand Opening on April 19th. Thanks to this new living community, families who have struggled to find affordable housing in Austin now have a safe, beautiful, and supportive place to call home.




With all 128 units fully leased, Lakeline Station is off to a successful start! This affordable housing development was built with sustainable green building practices in mind, particularly at the on-site Michael & Susan Dell Foundation Learning Center. The Learning Center will be the first “net zero” commercial building in Austin, ultimately producing more energy than it consumes.  Additionally, surrounding the building are metal cisterns which store rainwater harvested from the roof and a landscape which includes edible plants such as a loquat grove, sunflowers, and veggies planted in raised gardening beds for the children.




In keeping with the inspired mission of our client, Foundation Communities, the space will host after-school and summer learning programs for children as  well as “English as a second language” classes. For adults, the Learning Center will also provide financial coaching, exercise and nutrition classes, and help with health insurance enrollment.

As one of our latest speculative single-family residential projects, Arbutus Cove, goes underway, we catch up with one of the design team members, Kelly Stephenson for an update.


  1. Tell us your role in the project.

I am part of the design team headed by Partner-in-Charge Erik Ulland. Devanne Pena, who did the amazing 3-D renderings, is also on the team.


  1. In what stage is the project?

The project is about to be under construction as a speculative home and is now on the market.

  1. Please provide details of the house and any unique features.

This is a six bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom home on a sloping, cul-de-sac property in a Westlake neighborhood. The steel staircase is going to be a major focal point. It is integrated into the design of the masonry fireplace, and will be lit from above with skylights.


  1. What are you most looking forward to with this project?

It is a very dramatic site with lots of terracing so we are eager to see it take shape. We are also excited to be working with the builder and Camelot Custom Homes. The panoramic views are going to be incredible – Lake Austin and the Pennybacker Bridge will be visible from the living room windows.


  1. What is the next step?

The site is steep and heavily wooded, so a lot of site work will need to take place first.  The next step will be close collaboration with the builder during the construction phase, giving guidance and feedback on detailing and materials and finishes, especially on the stone.

We were the original architects of this special project and special place formerly known as The Crossings.  Now Travaasa, this incredible experiential resort is a must see destination.  It is no surprise to us why they received this honor:
