David Cadwallader is the Principal Designer of Cadwallader Design. David established Cadwallader Design in 1983. His personalized, high quality design and keen attention to detail has become a trademark for both residential and commercial projects.  As leader of the studio’s design team, David is committed to providing their clients with creative problem solving and responsive project management for successful projects and lasting client relationships.  The firm’s award-winning projects, primarily in Dallas but also across the United States, have been published in numerous design magazines including Architectural Digest.  Among the many highly regarded architects with whom David has done projects are Russell Buchanan, Lionel Morrison, Ron Wommack, Overland Partners and Lake | Flato. 

Jessica Clements brings a unique perspective and multidisciplinary approach to design in her work at studioOutside. As a registered Architect with 10+ years of experience in landscape architecture and urban design her work focuses on the ‘space between buildings’ to create cohesive sites. Jessica’s work is inspired by the idea of creating experiential spaces through a lens of contextual systems (ecological, social, physical). She brings to her work a strength in communication: from persuasive conceptual design graphics to conveying the design intent through the construction process. Jessica has been an integrated team member of several notable retail/mixed use and master plan projects at studioOutside. In addition to her work at studioOutside, Jessica has lectured/taught as an adjunct facility member at the University of Texas, Arlington in the College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs. Prior to working at studioOutside, she was a team member of a studio that received two ASLA National Excellence in Planning Awards for work done in New Orleans, LA. In her spare time Jessica enjoys the perspective of our landscapes by running and cycling through them.
