BRW Architects connection with Texas Parks & Wildlife continued into phase two of a multi-phased development of the Game Warden Training Center in Hamilton County, Texas. One project within this phase was a new residence for the director of training for the Texas Game Warden program, a facility that allows the leader of this new campus to live on-site with his family during the duration of the academy sessions.
The design of the residence is a modestly scaled facility with the basic characteristics of home. The design of the dwelling was inspired by the hill country and the previous architecture created for the adjacent campus, utilizing the same palette of materials and strategic detailing. Concrete floors, stained siding, standing seam metal roofing, various recycled materials, stone walls & fireplace all responding to the campus character. The residence was sited to take advantage of the river views and sweeping hillsides to the north and west.
