Tour B: Classic Modern Dallas–The Rose Residence Since the early 1990’s, Dallas has been the backdrop to a number of homes designed by nationally and internationally recognized modern architects. Nestled among the trees and wide lawns of Highland Park, University Park, and Preston Hollow are grand homes with both historic and modern roots. On this tour, visit Antoine Predock’s Rose Residence. The house engages its natural surroundings and places the focus away from the street toward the green space of the creek behind the house. The whole house takes the cue of the owner’s fondness for birdwatching, in which the wide variety of floor levels and expansive tree-covered roof garden recall a tree with branches at multiple heights, offering distinctive views depending on where one is perched.
