Sitting next to an infinity edge pool, the spacious pool house contains an informal dining space along with a full-fledged kitchen and other private spaces. The dining area flows into the terraced garden and pool deck outside thanks the use of large, sliding glass doors that seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors. As far as the green roof itself, architects had to request the city for special permissions as existing construction and water drainage norms simply did not permit for the lovely addition.

Additional rainwater simply drains away from the green roof and flows to a natural creek nearby while a large fireplace provides a warm and striking focal point as the sun sets and dark Texas nights take over.
