Cottonwood House by Bernbaum – Magadini Architects

Cottonwood House

Cottonwood House is a single family house designed by Bernbaum-Magadini Architects. The house is located in Dallas, Texas, US.

From the architect: A home for entertaining friends and family was the inspiration for this 7500 SF home. Although the couple were empty nesters they wanted plenty of room for children, spouses and grandchildren to come and visit.

The existing home was demolished and the new home was sited to insure that all existing trees were preserved. We took advantage of the view on this beautiful 5 acre property by designing 3 glass boxes that project into the landscape and engage the vista.

The glass boxes house the master bedroom, living room and game room. While inside the house there are no views to the neighbors on either side and there is a feeling of being out on the open range.

The exterior materials were chosen to create a soft and warm contemporary feel. There is a mixture of smooth cut Leudars limestone, Oklahoma multicolor stone and metal. The overall affect, inside and out, is warm and comfortable and livable.
