PRIVATE GALLERY

 

“Private Gallery” provides a Dallas philanthropist the space to display an impressive collection of museum-quality contemporary art, which includes many large-scale pieces, in this 9,620 sq ft gallery/guest house. It is located behind the owner’s main residence and was conceived with the garden to help form, enliven and engage—without dominating—its four-acre site. The gallery’s materials, including glass, concrete, Vermont green slate and weathered teak window frames, have been specifically selected to interact with the garden’s plantings and colors. The gallery/guest house’s floor plan features a majestic central gallery intersected by a series of exquisitely furnished rooms, including the living room with its 26-foot-high ceiling. All spaces have only corner openings for doorways and windows so that prime wall space is available for art, with light sensitive art and video installations installed on the lower level of this wonderfully crafted house.

RESIDENCE FOR ART

 

“Residence for Art” provides a beautiful setting for experiencing a nationally significant collection of contemporary art. Sophisticated lighting design provides art museum illumination levels in the central gallery as well as warm, intimate levels in the living quarters. Completed in 2012, the spacious residence encompasses over 12,500-square-feet. The scale of the design—including fourteen-foot ceilings—creates the feeling of large, open expanses for living with art.  The one-and-a-half-acre site is a match for the house, straddling a tributary creek with grounds falling toward limestone bluffs, creating an oasis of nature in the city. Architectural details are finely crafted and clean. Split-face limestone exterior surfaces, smooth-cut limestone-clad walls, and matte-finish zinc surfaces combine with simply detailed and neutral interiors to create a superior context for sophisticated modern living.

CREEK SIDE

 

Originally designed by Bud Oglesby for his sister, “Creek Side” remained in her possession until purchased by the current owners.  The residence consists of 4,650 sq ft of open living space on two floors that takes strategic advantage of natural light. The renovation team respected Oglesby’s original architectural intent while carefully updating and adding bathrooms, detaching a staircase, and installing a double-height wall of glass.  A new bulthaup kitchen gives greater flexibility for entertaining. The renovated home retains the original minimalist design aesthetic as a backdrop for a growing art collection. Crisp, tonal white walls and bleached oak and natural limestone floors spread their cool patina throughout the residence, while blues and greens from the creek and overhanging trees provide the inspiration for the living room’s color palette. The owners’ interest in collecting pieces from the Brutalist period informs the art, furniture and decorative elements. Three decades after opening its doors, Creek Side retains its effortless charm.
