We Look Forward to Discussing with You Architecture for the Best Sites The two most important things for you as a buyer is to evaluate the architecture of a home and the site of a home. The architecture must respond to your specific needs and aesthetic taste.
If there are two basic points Lawrence W. Speck, a tenured professor and former dean of the school of architecture at the University of Texas at Austin, inculcates in his design students, they are to respect the work of their celebrated forebears and to wield the tools of invention and engineering in moving beyond prescribed architectural boundaries. With his restructuring of an existing house in a leafy suburb of Dallas, the teacher has, in effect, created a textbook study that incorporates each of his pet precepts into a single graphically illustrative example. In 1970 the late, esteemed Dallas architect Enslie (Bud) Oglesby designed a house for a friend in Highland Park.
Dallas , 2004 The House on Turtle Creek is a thorough renovation and addition to 1970s house originally designed by noted Dallas architect Bud Oglesby. The project became a kind of collaboration with Bud via the bones that he left for the house.

Emily Summers’s first job out of school, where she majored in art, was in the fashion office of the original Neiman Marcus store in Dallas. Stanley Marcus, she recalls, became a friend and mentor: “He aimed high and expected the best.” Through him, Summers met luminaries in the fashion and design industries, associations that continued into her own interior design practice, which accelerated when architect Antoine Predock asked her to collaborate on a major southwestern residence in the early 1990s. The hallmark of Dallas-based Emily Summers Design Associates is an elegant and fresh contemporary interior that integrates architecture and art. Summers approaches commissions from an artistic point of view, creating, as she calls them, “spatial collages of color and texture.”
