Wolfe Den, Austin, Texas
Architect MJ Neal, much like his hometown of Austin, Texas, possesses a balanced combination of country cordiality and urban edge. In October 2008, we wrote about one of his projects in the rural town of Cleburne, outside of Fort Worth, which embodied the spacious, roughhewn side of Neal's style. Today we feature one of his most recent projects, Wolfe Den, an urbane counterbalance to our last visit with this Texan architect.
