Dallas, Texas

Urban dwelling able to meet the every day demands of a growing family, yet satisfy their entertaining needs.

In this exciting project, the client charged the architect and interior designer, Anne Williams to design a spacious four bedroom home on a relatively small urban plot. They wished to be particularly sensitive to the scale and style of other homes on the street, being sure not to overbuild the lot, an increasingly common practice in the area.

Plans were drawn which would comfortably accommodate both living and entertaining without segregating the functions. The architect devised a circulation pattern that allows family and guests to move throughout the house harmoniously. This pattern maintains a relationship between the family and living spaces of the main level. Common spaces (powder bath, storage, bar, etc.) and vertical circulation are contained through the center of the house, allowing all living spaces to be near exterior walls for natural light.
