The Dallas Center For Architecture hosts some amazing open houses, allowing patrons to tour homes with unique design elements and stunning construction and giving architecture lovers access to some truly one-of-a-kind properties.
This time patrons can tour a Park Cities home that is as sustainable as it is chic. Enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres while touring this incredible 8,300-square-foot home designed by Perkins+Will principal Tom Reisenbichler, designed for himself and his family.
Reisenbichler’s objective was to prove that environmentally sensitive architecture can be both appealing to the eyes and senses. We think he achieved that, with an LEED-H Platinum structure that is absolutely enchanting but doesn’t distract from the natural beauty surrounding it.
“The use of entertaining spaces which flow from inside the home to under the canopy of trees, engages the site and creates wonderful linkages between spaces. The design is a balanced composition of solids and glass with strong horizontal lines tying the building to the site,” the press materials state. “The home uses high-quality reclaimed and recycled materials, such as teak, local stone for interior walls and tile rich in recycled content. The house far surpasses Energy Star efficiencies and uses the highest efficiency materials available in the market for insulation.”
You can see it for yourself on Nov. 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $75 per person and specific details will be shared after confirmation. Find out more about registering for this event on the Dallas Center For Architecture’s website.
