The Highland Park residence offers a counterproposal to the contemporary Tudor mansions and French chateaus of this Dallas neighborhood. On a property without any significant natural features or trees, and neighbors looming on either side, a stone bar hovers precariously at the building line and bends to define a private setting. The living room is carved into the stone bar above, providing unexpected height, while curved glass panels and retracting Skyframe glass doors encourage a connection to the exterior landscape. Raw and refined finishes are paired throughout. Mill-finished steel abuts Indiana limestone panels, and handmade tile from Guadalajara couples with stainless steel fixtures. A separate gallery building provides a carefully calibrated setting for a significant collection of rotating art.
