The modern garden house design idea located in Dallas – Texas designed by Cunningham Architects as an intense collaboration between architect, client, and landscape architect, an amazing amount of consideration was incorporated into each feature throughout the entire design and construction process. A modern two story box with outdoor swimming pool design, the stunning home garden idea is clad on three sides with a rain screen system, utilizing Ipe hardwood that will weather over time to a silver-grey sheen. The house elevation and south facade is glazed in frameless, insulated glass units incorporating two eight foot wide sliding glass doors. This luxury green residence is a free-standing addition to an elegant modernist house on an adjoining lot. Several existing Red Oak and Elm trees were incorporated into the garden design, whereby both lots contributed to the formation of a larger garden en mass. A minimal plant palette makes mass plantings used for large textural impact and screening for privacy.
As a contemporary urban retreat home design for an artist and car enthusiast who lives next door, much care was taken to quietly insert this new residence into the neighborhood, yet express the unique identities of the owners. As such, the client’s affinity for the color blue was incorporated into several of the dominating elements within the garden and the house. This eco-friendly house design fluid process was necessary in order to successfully deliver a functional home, regularly capable of hosting informal family gatherings and large social functions.
