Far back on a lot in Preston Hollow is a house that appears to levitate above the earth. It is at once light, even ethereal, while also being unquestionably natural, solid, and unmovable.

The Sunnybrook residence was designed for owners who requested a clean, uncluttered plan with warmth and texture as rich as their Texas history. Because of the deep site setback, the structure appears to be suspended in and above the gently sloping lawn, which glides under and through the house.

Massive windows create a light, open interior and allow the eye to flow through the residence from the exterior, while the stacked stone and cut Leuders anchor the residence to its natural environment. Careful placement of the fireplace and adjustable louvers allow the owners to screen the private portions of the house from the street, while the clerestories allow light to fill the living spaces.
