3 3-4. Garlic Creek Clubhouse, Buda, Texas. Housing a meeting room exercise facility, snack bar, restrooms, swimming pools, and an outdoor pavilion with fireplace, the building provides amenities for residents of a new housing development south of Austin. The modern design juxtaposes durable materials including weathering steel for fences and doors, metal roofing, with sand stone exterior and traditional shed forms to evoke traditional rural Texas vernacular. Deep overhangs provide shaded porches around the lap pool and adjacent kiddie pool and shield interiors from direct sun. Generous windows and use of glass allow for easy indoor-outdoor connections, reinforcing the sense of community. Landscaping using native, drought resistant plants reduces water usage for the surrounding park area.
