Preston Hollow Residence
The Preston Hollow Residence was designed for a couple seeking a new home for their growing art collection.
Located on an unusual shaped lot over 1 acre in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, the home is sited to maximise the views from the home and create a vanishing point to the horizon from the primary living spaces.
These views are framed by a series of exterior and interiorplanes that allow the landscape to extend from the exterior to interior.
Located toward the back of the lot the house creates a courtyard of privacy with the lawn and pool terrace as the backdrop, and in doing so creates long views from the front of the home, creating the feeling of an expansive landscape. Buffered by the landscape on the sweeping edge of the lot, the home provides the privacy on an otherwise exposed corner lot.
The home was designed with a rich but subdued palette, using the natural hues from the marble, limestone, and white oak floors to complement the owner’s art collection. Numerous architectural details abound, such as the decorative pivoting metal gate and custom door hardware,, to provide the finishing touches.
The owners of the Preston Hollow residence sought to utilize both passive and active methods to reduce energy consumption of the home.
The west side of the home is largely solid with light coloured limestone to reduce the impact of the Texas sun, while other areas of the home have largely expanses of glass with deep overhangs to provide natural daylight and minimal heat gain.
To actively control the sun, the home employs motorized shading when needed. The home features 26 solar panels along the roof to reduce its energy consumption and at times return power to the grid.
To further reduce the environmental impact of the home, all the storm water from the roof surface is directed to a 10,000 gallon underground water cistern that is used in the irrigation of the site.
Other energy conscious features include geothermal heating and cooling foam insulating, and the use of an energy management control system.
