Built in a suburb of Fort Worth, this crisp, rectilinear home is located on a deep narrow lot with many trees and views of Lake Grapevine from the upper deck. The home features curved wooden roof beams over a great room, a curved entry sequence, concrete, steel and wood structure covered with stucco, and a glass and granite kitchen.
The home was designed for a CPA and his wife who wanted to express their personal vision for a unique contemporary home. The stair-tower which is covered in red stucco and punctuated by punched openings, was inspired by the architect’s friendship with Italian designer Aldo Cibic, of the Memphis movement from the 1970’s.
