This Highland Park home was designed by Scott Lyons, a Dallas modernist who was a protégé of the legendary architect O’Neil Ford, FAIA. Completed in the mid-1970s, the house generally remained in its original condition for nearly forty years. In 2014, the current owner was attracted to the visual “quietness” of the house and the way the floor plan nestled within the exterior courtyards that surround it. The desire to retain these qualities drove the remodeling process. The house was gutted to its structural frame. With the exception of the exterior stucco, all the interior and exterior surfaces are new. The only new floor space is a 450-square foot studio addition off the master suite. All the door and window openings are original, but new white oak doors and windows replace the original aluminum versions, while oak flooring replaces the original tile flooring, and new custom-designed oak cabinets replace the original painted cabinets. A covered porch was added to the kitchen area and new under-story plantings were added under the live oak trees that surround the house. The owner’s art collection played a large role in the design of the new spaces. Much attention went into the placement and lighting of the art pieces – in particular, the large hanging sculpture in the dining room by James Surls.
