Valley Ridge Road Residence
“A large masonry wall runs the length of the house dividing the private living spaces from the larger, more open, public spaces. A metal roof with a deep overhang protects windows from the harsh sun on the second floor. Large rectangular blocks of Texas fossil stone provide the house’s energy needs along with the geothermal wells used to heat and cool the house. The construction is state of the art relative to sound isolation, thermal resistance, and use of regional materials and methods.”
Wildwood Lane Garden
“A transformation of a rear yard into a garden with exercise pool, pavilion for outdoor living, and a newly glazed connection with the dining and living spaces. Site is bordered with a grid of trees and tall privacy screens.”
