The Preston Hollow residence was designed for a couple seeking a new home for their growing art collection. Located on an unusually shaped lot of just over 1 acre in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, the home is sited to maximize the views from the home and create a vanishing point to the horizon from the primary living spaces.
These views are framed by a series of exterior and interior planes that allow the landscape to extend from exterior to interior. Located toward the back of the lot the house creates a courtyard of privacy with the lawn and pool terrace as the backdrop, and in doing so creates long views from the front of the home, creating the feeling of an expansive landscape. Buffered by the landscape on the sweeping edge of the lot, the home provides the privacy on an otherwise exposed corner lot.
