house no. 46

House no. 46 is currently in design development and being marketed.

This house is a spec house for a developer in Dallas. The property is part of a unique development, located near a natural ravine and a rapid transit line, which has high environmental sustainability standards. The site features a gentle hill at the west end and slopes down six feet to the east at the rear of the site.

The design exploits this subtle terrain in order to provide a strong connection with the landscape and privacy from the street. Spaces within the house are mostly open but are defined by their connection to different views outside, with varying scales and degrees of intimacy depending on the needs of each space.
