U.S. Architect Tom Reisenbichler has designed the Caruth Boulevard residence in Dallas, Texas.
The residence is designed to prove sustainable (green) design is not exclusive.
Integrated tightly into the large iconic trees on the site, this house uses traditional home proportions to blend with the neighborhood. The horizontal lines of the design tie the home to the land, while the roof and balcony reach into the trees making them integral to the home.
LEED Gold certified home features many sustainable strategies, from photovoltaic solar panels and recycled materials to native plants that are drought tolerant, every detail of sustainability is considered.
First level uses a central core (wooden box) as the main organizing element around which public spaces flow. Open plans integrate indoor and outdoor spaces.
