This north-facing backyard porch in East Austin offers shade all day during the Texas summer. A peculiar roof was born of the client's desire for a traditional shed roof form and the constraints of the existing roof structure. The resulting trapezoid's splayed rafters create a forced perspective. This perception of increased depth imparts a certain grandness to the relatively shallow space. Designed and built in collaboration with Jonas Fox for our friend Teddy the dog trainer.
