LLANO LOUNGE

Surrounded by large Live Oak Trees, this contemporary rustic lodge creates a welcome retreat in the Texas Hill Country.  Natural materials  in earthy tones - rusted corrugated steel roofing and siding, rusted steel structure, Texan limestone, timber siding, and board-formed concrete - aims to blend in with the surrounding landscape.    The layout of the lodge is designed to integrate with the existing trees, capture views, and respect the ruins of a former cabin that is original to the ranch.  From the living room, one can enjoy beautiful views through a cluster of trees to sloping hills, red-faced cliffs, and a Texan sunset.  One unique feature is the variety of porches, four in total.  The southern porch is screened-in, while the other porches provide different views and places to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee, depending on the time of day.
