Max Levy Designed Architecturally Significant Modern Real Estate

Bent Tree Real Estate

5423 Bent Tree Drive, Dallas, Texas

A Bent Tree lot was found overlooking the Preston Trails greenbelt. This home takes its cue from the modernism cubes of the Frank Welch home designed in the 1970s when this suburban neighborhood was first developed.

A generous clerestory fills the living spaces of this 4,000 square-foot geometric home with light and becomes a dramatic architectural feature. Steel and bleached redwood sunscreens further enhance the facade. A distinguishing detail on this subtle home are the metal castings of leaves oriented vertically on 13-inch shafts anchored to the walls of the front facade entry and courtyard creating dramatic botanical shadows on the muted tones of the stucco.
