San Antonio, Texas – Poteet Architects

Built area: 29.7 m2  (320 sq. ft.)
Photography: Chris Cooper

The client, artist Stacey Hill, who lives in a San Antonio artists’ community, wanted a playhouse, a garden retreat, a storage shed and a guesthouse for visiting artists. The Poteet suggested a 40 x 8 container.  The container was sited on a foundation of recycled telephone poles.  Then, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, heating and air-conditioning, a green roof, bamboo flooring and wall-coverings, a small sink and shower and a composting toilet were added.


We think it’s nothing short of an exceptional transformation.  What do you think?
