URBAN INFILL

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.

Sale-0032

Living, dining, office, and kitchen are on the second level, above a first-floor apartment. Interiors by Neal Stewart.

Sale-0010

Fireplace surround designed by Italian mosaic artists annifietta. Furniture from George Cameron Nash.

Sale-0075

The kitchen looks spacious, but is basically a galley kitchen, minus walls that confine.

Sale-0094

A slot window in the kitchen brings in light but blocks the view of neighboring houses.

Sale-0131

Windows above the breakfast banquette overlook treetops. The custom banquette is accented with fabric from Clarence House and the chairs are from Brueton.

Sale-0142

Glass bridge to the bedroom wing is just visible to the right of the breakfast area.

Exterior materials are zinc panels, board-formed concrete, commercial windows, and stucco.
