Selecting the Right Architect For Your Home Creates Value
One of the Many Ways I Help my Clients as a Real Estate Agent
The two of the 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. A site must be able to offer you the most enjoyment and be the best investment.
We Will Help You Determine the Best Architect and Site For Your
New Modern Home or Estate Home
Helping you determine the best architecture and the best site is one way we benefit our clients. Really good architecture will enhance your personal enjoyment of the home and the superior design will enhance your investment when the time comes to sell the home. The specific site it more important than a general location. The real estate saying Location, Location, Location is responding to the general prices of current areas considered desirable. A specific site within a location determines the quality of investment and enjoyment of the property. The inferior sites of good locations are generally over-priced and the best sites of a good location are generally under-priced. If you decide you would like me to represent you, we will discuss the best architecture and the best sites that are available or could possibly be available. If you are looking for acreage or a building site, we can review the most talented architects who might be a good fit for you in both approach and design.

Your letter made me think about the few houses I designed in my 42 year career as a practicing architect. Their few design attributes have long been horribly abused by successive owners. It is good to know you are still locating and marketing the houses designed by the better breed of Dallas architects.
All the best,

David Williams Originated Texas Modern Style
Architect David Williams originated the Texas Modern Style inspired by Texas and Louisiana indigenous homes. The home at 6292 Mercedes Avenue in Wilshire Heights Neighborhood in Dallas that he designed for Ray McDowell in 1927 is where David Williams jumped off from the blatant Spanish Colonial eclecticism prevalent in the 1920s and designed a more “Texas Colonial” style home reflecting the indigenous qualities of East Texas and Louisiana. As architectural historian Jay C. Henry wrote in his fabulous book, Architecture in Texas 1895-1945, David Williams’ work was further inspired by the colonists led by Stephen Fuller Austin in 1821. David Williams said, “Their comfort demanded a little beauty and a great deal of taste. There is not in any one of these houses built in the Southwest before 1850 an instance of imitation of foreign styles, of sham, of striving for effect, of any use of unnatural, unnecessary ornament or of material not structural and fit for its purpose….Their style is modern, for it satisfies all the requirements of modern design and construction.”

Dallas Architects and International Architects - Continued
Dallas Architects: As a realtor helping clients buy and sell architect designed homes we see Dallas has a rich history of architecture. Dallas patrons commissioned the most important architects from the East Coast, West Coast and the Midwest to design homes, and retained Dallas and Texas architects who incorporate the indigenous qualities of the region into their modern designs. The influence of these architects in Dallas can most easily be divided into three categories: Modern, Texas Modern and Eclectic. For over 100 years Dallas was a vibrant growing city with unlimited space, which allowed Dallas architects ample opportunity to pursue their art. Here you will find a brief profile of some of the architects who have made an impact on Dallas. See featured architect designed homes offered for sale.
The wealth of good architecture in Dallas comes from the influences and interaction of Dallas architects exploring European traditions and early twentieth century interpretations of eclectic style; Dallas architects who draw from indigenous Texas design and materials; Dallas architects that design in a contemporary style that utilizes Texas materials, but is less regional in its point of view; and architects with a national and international reputation who explore their design ideas in Dallas.
Doug - Your glossary of Dallas regional architects is wonderful. Job well done.
