Modern expressions of a life well lived. Each striving for an exquisite balance between the natural world, form, space and the lives of those who dwell within.


Extensive reconstruction + 6,300 square feet

Located in North Dallas, this 6,300 s.f. residence sits overlooking mature trees and a 270-degree view of a golf course. The design challenge was to more fully explore the site by juxtaposing the geometry of the private and public areas of the home through a 45-degree pivot point, expressed by a horizontal design and butterfly roof structure. Floor-to-ceiling windows promote views through numerous glass corner conditions and allow light to filter throughout. The design approach centered around anchor points - including roof lines, a floating water entry and even the outdoor fireplace. The intention being to ground one in the experience and lift the eyes up to open spaces and the nature beyond.

Extensive reconstruction + 3,500 square feet

Located on a heavily-wooded property minutes from downtown Dallas, this project was a complete re-design of a delapidated 1950s split-level home. The complete transformation of this 3,500 s.f. residence echos its mid-century roots by maintaining the low, sweeping proportions and open expanses that engage the landscape and allow the natural spaces to define the architecture. Visitors are gracefully guided through framed views offering different perspectives of the home’s wooded surroundings, including a glass encased perch hovering above a sparkling reflecting pool.
