Architecturally Significant Homes

Homes Impact Our Lives

Featured Architecturally Significant Home

Some architecturally significant homes are substantial in size designed by important architects on several acre estate lots. Other architecturally significant homes might be smaller Midcentury Modern homes designed by talented architects. I have chosen to feature this Normandy style cottage on the Architecturally Significant Home section because it was designed by Mark Lemmon who many have called the most important 20th century historicist architect in Dallas. This early cottage style might have influenced the architectural style of popular neighborhoods nearby. Mark Lemmon designed this home for himself and his family which gives this home added importance. In addition, its importance is accentuated by being across the street from architecturally significant buildings and churches he designed on the SMU campus. It also provides an important historical context to Mark Lemmon as an architect, to SMU as a university, and to Dallas as a city.

When you review architecturally significant homes, I invite you to look at them as I do, through the lens of the Crespi/Hicks estate, designed by Maurice Fatio, the original architect in 1939, and Peter Marino, the 21st century renovation architect. This architecturally significant home found in Preston Hollow resonates with modern and eclectic architects because of its proportions, purity, site and grace. It reflects many of the best characteristics of the other homes in this section.
