Lots of images, I know. But this place is really special. Built in 1989 for the Carraro family using structures from the closed Alamo Cement plant, now called The Plant at Kyle, this residence helped put architects Lake|Flato on the map and is considered a landmark of Texas vernacular design. Of course I fell in love with it the first time I laid eyes on images, over two decades ago; and I’ve been fortunate enough to spend a decent amount of time there in the past 5 years or so, since the place was purchased by some friends. This past weekend I was there again for a celebration — for the first time since the place was built there has been major renovation work done to the structure and the owners threw a bash.

If you’ve always wanted to have a party or spend a weekend at this place — or just pretend you own it for a bit of time — you can. The Plant at Kyle is available as a rental venue or getaway. I highly recommend it!

Architecture: Lake|Flato Architects.
