Located along a winding, tree-lined street and perched uphill from Turtle Creek, this Highland Park site offers a hidden respite from the busier parts of Dallas, Texas just blocks away.

The main foci of the project were the protection and preservation of the site’s existing mature trees and the amplification of the rolling topographic features. The home was carefully sited and organized, in collaboration with the client and architect, to support both goals. Site access departs from a traditional impermeable driveway and opts for a thoughtfully designed, fully permeable stone and gravel motor court. The permeability aids the roots of a significant tree near the entry. The rear portion of the property preserves the existing wooded meadow, an existing bridge structure over a small tributary to the creek below, and its rolling topography.
