Residence in Preston Hollow
Located in one of the older residential neighborhoods in Dallas, this house employs a 19th Century English vocabulary of classically detailed brick walls with limestone trim and gently sloping slate roofs. The house is organized around a series of exterior courtyards that extend into the landscape. An axial sequence leads from the square motor court through the centrally-located living room to the lawn and creek at the south of the site. The wings contain the more informal spaces and extensive athletic facilities.
