Greenhouse design is stunning in combination with concrete structure and natural materials are located on the edge of the zone gawir, houses arranged along the natives, stacked stone wall 182 feet and 21 feet high. Designed by Cunningham Architects, the design of this greenhouse cantilevered concrete canopy to function as a disturbance through the wall into and through the house, while allowing views through the dense brush from the site of an open vista to the west.

As a counter to the house, long and low is located in native vegetation, observation tower at the north end of the house lift residents above the treetops. Magnificent views of several thousand acres of protected habitat, along with views far from Dallas and Fort Worth make the tower’s favorite perch.

Mono-sloping roof consists of 10 “SIP on a laminated wooden beams, allowing the cantilevers length 8 ‘above the glass facing west. Simple slab on grade concrete floor punctuated by inset end zone Mesquite wood grain. Natural cement plaster pigment, another Texas wood, copper, slate and glass complement the palette of materials.
