This beautiful family home in Texas celebrates the natural environment

contemporary-home-exterior

This contemporary family home was designed to embrace its natural surroundings by SHM Architects, nestled on a 1.4-acre property intersected by a creek in Dallas, Texas. An exterior facade of light stucco complimented by standing seam metal roofs helps to meld this L-shaped home into its beautiful landscape.

The architects designed this family home to capture the beauty of the property. Living areas such as the kitchen and family room open on either side through floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, providing views of both the entry court and swimming pool while blurring indoor-outdoor boundaries.
