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.

Douglas Newby Discusses with David Sutherland His Preston Hollow Modern Home Designed by Lionel Morrison

David Sutherland and his wife Ann are the owners of one of the top design studios in the country offering outdoor and indoor furniture and many other collections. They are also perfect clients and collaborators for award winning modern architect Lionel Morrison, FAIA, at their new Dallas architecturally significant modern home in the Preston Hollow neighborhood. David Sutherland discusses with Douglas Newby the concept of this modern home, the second modern estate home that Lionel Morrison has designed for them that includes their influence.

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 is 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.

This section was developed to give you a brief overview of the architecture, architects and architectural styles you will find in Highland Park, University Park and Dallas, Texas.

Significant Past International Architects

Midcentury Modern Home Designed by Architect Edward Durell Stone

Dallas has a long tradition of residents attracting and retaining prominent East and West Coast architects to design their homes. Here you will also find examples of the country’s most important architects from Chicago, Cleveland, Palm Beach and other major cities, designing their finest work in Dallas.

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,

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.
