MID-CENTURY MODERNIZED

 

Originally designed in 1950 by architect Jon D. Carsey, this residence is located in the heart of Greenway Parks. The initial architecture is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright's work with deep overhangs and linear proportions, and its 2012 Bodron+Fruit renovation continues those themes. Additions are clad in Douglas Fir to reinforce the linearity of the plan. Now at 5,900 sq ft, the residence opens to the beautiful greenway to the north and maintains the original enclosed courtyard. Bodron+Fruit respected Carsey's original architecture while seamlessly incorporating the additions for this residence.

INSIDE THE BOX

 

MOCKINGBIRD residence is one of the most experimental and controversial new residences in Dallas. The building is clad in an ultra energy-efficient metal insulated panel system that combines maximum protection with minimum long-term maintenance. Designed for a young family in the stone import and fabrication business, the 4,410 sq ft residence contains a main building in a simple rectilinear shape, designed in plan using five equal squares. Adjacent to the main building is an entry vestibule clad entirely in onyx slab. Completing the composition is a polished black stone wall for privacy and security. Tailored details, such as the quirk miter at corners, subtly refer to the craft of the owners' livelihood.

TURTLE CREEK ART HOUSE

 

Turtle Creek House, winner of numerous national architectural awards, was designed by AIA Gold Medal architect Antoine Predock. Situated on the banks of Turtle Creek, Predock “contained the site to not let the sense of magic and power be released”. Composed of limestone, concrete, glass and stainless steel, the house establishes a connection between the earth, the canopy of trees and the sky. A steel sky ramp and habitable roof terraces are integral elements of this connection. The interiors include custom furnishings and selections of the patrons' renowned contemporary art collection.

The adjacent Pump House, designed by Cunningham Architects, is a converted century-old municipal waterworks plant that now functions as a private gallery where the owners' display additional pieces of their art collection. There is also sculpture on the grounds of the site, which was designed by the landscape architecture firm MESA.
