As promised, here is another fabulous residence featured in the just-released book TEXAS MODERN, for which I wrote the introduction. This is an urban infill project by the Dallas-based architectural firm Bernbaum/Magadini. The site is only 50 feet by 250 feet, with a 10-foot fall from front to back. Because the clients wanted a large house (over 14,000 square feet), the challenge for the architects was how to fit all the homeowners’ requirements into such a small lot.
Living, dining, office, and kitchen are on the second level, above a first-floor apartment. Interiors by Neal Stewart.
Fireplace surround designed by Italian mosaic artists annifietta. Furniture from George Cameron Nash.
The kitchen looks spacious, but is basically a galley kitchen, minus walls that confine.
A slot window in the kitchen brings in light but blocks the view of neighboring houses.
Windows above the breakfast banquette overlook treetops. The custom banquette is accented with fabric from Clarence House and the chairs are from Brueton.
Glass bridge to the bedroom wing is just visible to the right of the breakfast area.

The main residence faces a courtyard, pool, and outdoor kitchen.
Stairs from first-level entry.
A glass bridge connects the main living area to the bedrooms.
Because of the lot’s narrowness, the four-car garage is below grade. Furniture is from Sutherland.
Exterior materials are zinc panels, board-formed concrete, commercial windows, and stucco.
