    [Lake Flato Design Team, Grace Boudewyns, Jonathan Smith, and Kerry Phillips, at the Fur Ball]   “Situated in your backyard, The Arf Residence is envisioned as a place that evokes the playfulness of summer by the lake and emphasizes exterior living spaces. A broad welcoming front porch and a green roof allow the house to keep things cool in the summer. The green roof is removable in trays to keep the overall weight down and to simplify maintenance. The Arf Residence features a powder coated steel structure for years of durability. Materials were sourced locally, with a common regional palette that naturally blends into the surrounding landscape. The wall siding features a salvaged local Cypress, while the floor is a salvaged Cedar to keep the bugs at bay. After a storm, fresh rain water is provided via a gutter and rain chain at the rear of the structure straight into your dog’s bowl.”  The Arf Residence is a non-profit doghouse realized by Lake Flato Architects and Rubiola Construction to be auctioned off in an effort to raise funds for the Animal Defense League of Texas.
