Wander Lane Residence

Location: Dallas, Texas

Project Architect:

A Mid-Century Modern residence was restored and the site re-envisioned as a retreat within the city. Critical to the design was preserving the mature trees while removing the years of decay, vine covered walls and gravel-scape around the residence. The primary design goal was to express external views and establish premier screening with a new understory textural landscape.

The siting of this Mid-Century modern residence takes advantage of the parcel’s long axis, while an interesting use of courtyards and viewing areas, showcase the best of the local vernacular. The site work focused on expanding the experiential with the natural setting to create multiple outdoor spaces. Functional lawns, with naturalized buffers beyond, were designed as external spaces off the living areas. Outdoor courtyards for viewing art, act as peaceful sanctuaries throughout the site. The garden pool and pavilion serve as a retreat and completely immerse the landscape. The materiality, the textural response and the laying of detail bring a Modernist retreat to experiential fruition.
