Located just north of The University of Texas, this modern studio showcases how green building can coexist with a historic landmark, the Fruth House. Designed as a photography gallery, creative use of space achieves a spacious feeling. Completed in February 2012, it incorporates “green building” concepts: LED lights, solar panels, efficient heating/AC, and tankless water heater. A queen-sized Murphy bed, fully-equipped kitchen, and comfy furnishings on a century-old reclaimed wood floor provide visitors with a home base to explore Austin. Approximately 450 sq. Ft. Of air conditioned space plus a 70 sq. Ft balcony with chairs and table. Centrally-located, guests can catch the UT shuttle (75 yards), or walk to UT (1 mile), Central Market, and nearby restaurants along the “Drag” (Guadalupe) and in Hyde Park; we are near several hospitals (Austin Heart, Seton, St. David’s, University Medical/Brackenridge, and Dell Children’s) and the Capitol. UT scholars, visitors, sports fans, athletes (especially rowers!) and live music aficionados—all are welcome to enjoy our Gallery House

Murphy Bed note: This is a NORMAL QUEEN size bed. It is just stored vertically. It rests on a 155 lb. Substantial frame and is in no way similar to a skinny fold out bed from a couch. It is made by the original Murphy Bed Company in Farmingdale, NY, the same way it has been made for the past 70 years
