A relaxing retreat and part-time residence for the legendary Willie Nelson will be created. The facility should remain anonymous and private because of the client's celebrity status, yet, open and airy to the scenic views of the surrounding hill country. The site of the residence is in Pontotoc, Texas, which is a tiny ghost town between Llano and Brady, on Highway 71. The site itself includes an old sandstone structure that was once a house before it burned. This structure will be incorporated into the new design. Incorporating a vocabulary of regional forms and materials to an existing stone structure in Pontotoc, Texas and responding to the environment by utilizing energy conservation techniques, a modern vernacular and adaptive use architecture can be created.
