This screen porch in San Antonio, Texas gives new life to an old space. The structure of an existing cedar trellis was preserved and skinned in a new layer of cedar, screen, and steel. An ample sliding door allows the space to feel either connected to or protected from the outside world. A western overhang offers shade from the afternoon sun. Together, new and old cedar provide a shady poolside respite. Designed and built in collaboration with Jonas Fox under the moniker h a n d m a d e architecture + construction. Read Less

This screen porch in San Antonio, Texas gives new life to an old space.  The structure of an existing cedar trellis was preserved and skinned in a new layer of cedar, screen, and steel.  An ample sliding door allows the space to feel both connected to and protected from the outside world.  A western overhang offers shade from the afternoon sun.  Together, new and old cedar provide a shady poolside respite.

Designed and built in collaboration with Jonas Fox under the moniker h a n d m a d e.
 
Dialogue between new and weathered cedar.
"Flitch" screen door.
A discarded leather belt is repurposed into a door handle.
Jonas is happy.
