KESSLER WOODS TRAIL // Domiteaux + Baggett Architects
Conceived of as a sculptural expression of the programmatic requirements, the Casa Blanco on Kessler Woods Trail uses the relationship between architectural elements and the surrounding site as a means of creating a vibrant oasis tucked away from urban life. The home is expressed through two reductive forms: one that engages the nature preserve to the north of the site, and the other that acts as an organizing element to the urban edge along the eastern portion of the home. Uniting the home is an entryway that defines a strong sense of progression into the oasis that lies beyond. The home further utilizes the spatial organization as a means of respecting the environment from a ventilated rain-screen wrapped façade and roof element to an overall envelope and orientation that deflects the Texas heat. The owner’s vision is expressed throughout Casa Blanco through the layout, materials, and expressive details that enrich the home.
