Charles Granger, Architect | The Perch, 1941. City of Austin, State of Texas, and National Register historic landmark. Surrounded by dozens of historic homes on a quiet tree-lined street less than a mile from the UT campus, this Mid-Century Modern masterpiece is a work of art to be lived in. Surrounded by windows on all sides, like a tree house, with hardwood floors, new appliances, renovated bathroom, vintage fixtures, original built-ins and authentic details throughout. The architect designed and built this stand-alone garage apartment for himself, shortly after working in the Los Angeles office of influential modernist Richard Neutra, whose influence is clearly visible. The ribbon window system, inset structural columns, aluminum paint, open plan, and functional core (kitchen, bathroom, closets in a box at the heart of the composition) are reminiscent of Neutra’s well-known Strathmore Apartments and other work. Separate from the main house Granger later built for his growing family in the mid-fifties, this what we now call an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) offers separate entry, off-street parking, laundry, and the comfort of a single family home, with the aesthetic pleasure of living in a registered landmark, an architectural work of art.
