Melding a midcentury-modern style of architecture with an updated, contemporary landscape, the garden at Midcentury Creekside is an example of creating residential outdoor space with a site-sensitive and refined touch.
Sited on a sloping site in the heart of Dallas, Texas, Midcentury Creekside exhibits a landscape that combines exquisite detail with the simplicity of form in the architecture of the house. With slightly contemporary tones, but with reverence for the midcentury modern aesthetic of the home, a lower terrace was created to optimize views over the adjacent creek and woods. The upper courtyard and entry into the home seamlessly extend the unique material palette and orthogonal axes of the house into the landscape, creating the feeling that the house and garden were designed as one.
The simple modernity and open design of the home, in concert with the tranquil stillness and precision of the landscape, creates a place that finds balance in seemingly oppositional states: it is highly private but open to the landscape, contemporary yet mid-century modern, unassuming but expansive. It's a place of subtlety and harmony.
