Just minutes west of the perfectly manicured streets of Preston Hollow you find “rural” Dallas—where large pecan and oak trees reside and cover the curb-less streets. This house on Rosa Road is a modern farmhouse reminiscent of a Napa Valley Estate. The simple board and batten gabled structures are mixed with highly textured elements in the landscape to create a harmonious visual balance.
This residence was designed as a series of small pavilions connected by glass links; the structures weave their way through the existing trees and site amenities. The design incorporates a south-facing courtyard and porch that utilize the Texas climate and a north-facing evening court to enjoy the rural streetscape and converse with neighbors. The interior is filled with natural light and views and is appointed with the owner’s collection of local artisan paintings and sculptures.
