The home at 1006 Lausanne, built in 1937, is one of the five homes in a family of Skillern homes in the Kessler Park neighborhood. Only two owners have lived in the house since the Skillern family and both made significant changes to the home’s original footprint and architecture. Built by a Skillern daughter and her husband, a German engineer, the home was designed to stay cool during hot Texas summers. With a full brick exterior, small windows and multiple interior doors and windows for cross breezes, the original home was incredibly functional, if not stunning.
