The House by the Creek is an example of design subtlety, finely executed detailing, and preservation of a riparian corridor. The project sits on a wooded lot in an established Dallas neighborhood bordered by Turtle Creek and a busy four-lane street yet feels serene because of heavy tree cover and the orientation of the home. The project modestly uses high quality materials that blend easily with the landscape: slate from India, Texas limestone, almondrilla wood, stainless steel, and copper.
