hen facing a project with a list of restrictions, limitations and guidelines, it can be easy to think in terms of "can't." But Fazio Architects with Avenue B Development—both based in Austin, Texas—worked closely with their clients to design and remodel this historic home in Austin thoughtfully and carefully. e house was originally built in 1938, but the home's occupant of note was Lolla Peterson, who gained notoriety for her work with the Travis County Welfare Department and other community acts. Peterson bought the resi- dence in 1957—the same year she was selected as the ‹rst female recipient of Austin's Most Worthy Citizen recognition—and lived there until her death in 1978. In subsequent years, the home has been listed as a Texas Historic Landmark, a designation given to properties judged to be historically and architecturally signi‹cant. Because of the home's status, an "Application for a Certi‹cate of Appropriateness" had to be ‹led and ap- proved by the Historic Landmark Commission. e scope of work proposed (and ultimately completed) reads, "Remove a non-historic one-story addition and existing garage; construct a new addition and new garage with a second-story suite in the place of the old garage." e homeowners also sought a more unifying siding solution for the home, notes Greg Hayslett, LEED AP, project manager at Fazio Architects. Because of the home's histor- ic status, materials visible from the street had to remain, so a limestone veneer that closely mirrors the limestone on the front of the home replaced a siding used on the sides and back of the home. Also, the new garage features the limestone veneer with board-and-batten siding on the second story and matches the pitch of the home's gables. Another piece that necessitated strategic planning is the City of Austin's building code regarding impervious cover. e city's Zoning Guide from September 2016 de‹nes impervious cover as "anything that stops rainwater from soaking into the ground, including roads, sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, swimming pools and buildings."
