This residence in Bluffview area of Dallas, Texas, is executed with clarity and simplicity of the owner’s modernist sensibilities, integrated with Chambers Architects regionalist convictions. In collaboration with the client who is an architect himself, our firm created a home that is thoroughly modern in its use of space, light, massing, and proportion.

Regional character was achieved through the abstraction of elements of Texas culture. The home features a massive central wall with stone lintels which penetrates the external walls of the house. It uses a regional matrix of massive Texas limestone blocks, standing seam metal roof, dry stack stone wall at entry, and deep-shaded back porch, characteristic of Texas Hill Country homes.

“We love all the light, love the stone. The pervading stone wall is almost a work of art in itself—every piece of stone is different, and the light hits it differently. It’s my favorite feature. And the glass, and the trees.”
