Ridgecrest Drive Porch Addition

The Ridgecrest Drive Porch Addition renovation and porch addition tailors an existing house to fit the needs of its new owners and their dog. The new screened-in porch creates a more inviting and functional back entry into the house from the garage.

Details of the screen porch were refined to create an elegant, slim profile with the feel of an outdoor living room. Connected at the bottom of the existing eave, the new roof slopes up and out towards the beautiful, dense tree canopy in the backyard.

The new structure connects to a sculptural steel scupper, which directs water off of the covered porch and down into the sloping site. At the far end of the deck, a landscaped area offers a place for the new owners to play with their dog.

The interior renovations to the bathroom and mudroom help to organize the house for greater efficiency and enjoyability.

Pollen Architecture

Pollen Architecture is an award-winning modern architecture firm in Austin, TX founded in 2008 by principals with backgrounds in architecture, art, and construction. Their collaborative practice integrates skill sets from these interrelated fields to create projects that are inspiring, innovative, and beautifully-crafted.

This Texan architectural practice specialize in residential, commercial, and institutional projects. Their work begins with listening to our clients and tailoring a plan to their priorities and their specific site.

This Austin architects practice is led by Elizabeth Alford, Michael Young, and was founded by this pair with Dason Whitsett.

Elizabeth Alford, Principal, Assoc. AIA

Elizabeth’s work centers on creating engaging spaces that are carefully integrated into their surroundings, both natural settings and urban contexts. Elizabeth uses section, natural light and materiality to enrich the experience of a space. Prior to forming Pollen, Elizabeth ran her own firm, Elizabeth Alford Projects in Austin and New York, doing projects including studio renovations and farm buildings.

Michael Young, Artist In Residence, Founding Principal

Michael Young was trained as an artist with the primary focus of his practice being on geometric abstraction and design. Central to his work is a dialectic relationship between natural materials and objects as relating to architecture. His interest in applying the principles of this previous work and craft to the built environment lead him to become one of the founding principals of Pollen.
