Located on a heavily-wooded property minutes from downtown Dallas, this project was a complete redesign of a dilapidated 1950s split-level home. The complete transformation of this 3,500 s.f. residence echoes 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.
Rene Gracia Design Build
RGD+B ( Rene Gracia Design Build ) is a design-led practice, collaborating with clients on select ground-up private residential projects or extensive reconstructions. Our practice embraces the interplay between natural surroundings, form and space, and the lives of those who inhabit it. The studio is based in Dallas, Texas.
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.
