House on Turtle Creek Dallas, Texas Service Provided Architecture / Design / Interiors Final Project Size 7,330 Square Feet Type of Construction Renovation and Addition Awards AIA Austin Citation of Honor Building Stone Institute, Tucker Stone Award SARA Design of Honor TSA Honorable Mention
The House on Turtle Creek is a thorough renovation and addition to 1970s house originally designed by noted Dallas architect Bud Oglesby. The project became a kind of collaboration with Bud via the bones that he left for the house. Both ends of the structure, which were severely deteriorated, were removed; the house now opens up to extraordinary views of Turtle Creek and the Dallas Country Club. The delineation of zones for “servant” and “served” spaces, which paid homage to Louis Kahn in the original house, is now clarified and fortified. Luscious materials – sand blasted, cut Leuders limestone; Almondria wood; steel sash windows; a literally “hung” glass curtain wall; stainless steel fabric; scagliola – are employed throughout the new design. Both inside and outside rich, tactile surfaces are made even more vivid by a variety of natural light sources.

Torcasso Residence Santa Fe, New Mexico Service Provided Architecture / Design Services / Interior Design Final Project Size 6,000 Square Feet Type of Construction New Construction Awards Society of American Registered Architects Excellence Award and Best in Class CoD+A Award Collaboration of Design and Art Residential RTF Sustainability Awards First Award - Residential
The Torcasso House is inspired by the spectacular landscape of northern New Mexico and by the prospect of living in nature in a way that creates a constant and memorable connection to the mountains, the sky, the air and the climate of this extraordinary place. The house lies long and low, hugging the contours of a steep hill just under its crest. Expansive views from its north face stretch to Espanola and Los Alamos twenty miles away and survey layers of mountain ranges beyond a broad valley. The south face of the house works with a 20-foot rock outcrop on the side of the hill to create a long, thin, sunny courtyard. In the midsection of the house two rammed earth volumes delimit the public spaces and frame 60-foot apertures that link the living/ dining/kitchen area to the broad view on one side and to the contained courtyard on the other. Large operable glass panels slide away to create complete continuity from panorama, open terrace, trellised outdoor room and high-ceilinged interior space on the north side to more intimate wood-capped interior space, roofed terrace and courtyard to the south.

Concrete House Austin, Texas Service Provided Architecture / Design Services Final Project Size 6,000 Square Feet Type of Construction New Construction Awards Traditional Home Design Award Austin Chapter AIA Honor Award
Poor soil conditions on a spectacular site required a heroic foundation with few drilled piers and deep foundation beams. This, combined with the steep slope, gorgeous views, and abundant existing trees, dictated a long, thin rectangular footprint and a simple concrete volume to span between the piers. All of the major rooms, which look out to the trees or above them to downtown Austin, are housed in this primary volume. Looser, shaped wooden volumes are arranged around the concrete structure, housing the kitchen, entry, carport and porches. The home’s materials–plywoodformed concrete, bleached and weathered wood, and the curving, standing-seam roof– fade into the natural woods from the street. Inside, exposed concrete complements the clients’ antique furniture and rugs as well as their distinguished collection of modern art. A series of seven Jasper Johns collages are dramatically hung on the curved wall of the entry, allowing them a special dialogue with each other.

Tarrytown Residence Austin, Texas Service Provided Architecture / Design Services Final Project Size 5,000 Square Feet Type of Construction New Construction
Several large heritage oak trees dominate this long narrow site in a historic Austin neighborhood. Taking full advantage of the shade provided by the canopies of the oaks, the house weaves its way through the site creating two distinctly different courtyards. This meandering shape also serves to create a desired separation between the public and private areas of the house. With the public living areas focused around one court and the private bedroom areas looking onto another, every room can enjoy an indooroutdoor living experience. With lots of glass to take full advantage of the views and sunlight from the courts, a shading element was needed to aid in minimizing heat gain and provide an extra layer of privacy. For this purpose, and to soften the lines of the house, a light wood and steel trellis wraps many of the exterior facades. This delicate shading element creates a soft dappled light through many rooms in the house while maintaining a strong visual connection to nature.

Courtyard House Santa Fe, New Mexico Service Provided Architecture / Design Services Final Project Size 5,000 Square Feet Type of Construction New Construction
Sitting atop a hill bordering extensive parklands, this house enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the New Mexico landscape. To capitalize on this extraordinary site, the body of the house creates a â€˜Uâ€™ shape that provides each room with a view out to the distant mountains. A wall constructed of stones pulled directly from the site, connects the two ends of the house to enclose a private courtyard. With the closest neighbors miles away, and undisturbed wildlife habitats all around, this central courtyard allows the owners and their guests to enjoy the pleasant New Mexico climate both day and night without disrupting the native wildlife. Their collection of paintings and sculpture is displayed in a wide hallway that rings the courtyard, allowing a connection to the artwork from both inside and out. This gallery space also creates the spine of the house, connecting all of the rooms to each other and to the courtyard. As you traverse the gallery from one side of the house to the other, the rooms go from public to private. The courtyard follows suit and is divided into two spaces: one more formal for hosting private events, and the other more informal with a pool and space for kids to play.
