Bent Tree Residence

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 explore the site more fully 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 rooflines, a floating water entry, and even the outdoor fireplace. The intention is to ground one in the experience and lift the eyes up to open spaces and nature beyond.
