M Gooden Design is responsible for the creation of this three-level, multi-generational family home located in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. Entitled “Taula” House, the name is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning “Balance.” Guided by the Hindu architecture principles of Vastu shastra, this modern residence expresses a balance between traditional beliefs and contemporary ideologies of design.

Symmetry, directional alignments, spatial geometry, and delicate detailing were all paramount to the design success of the project. The exterior facade is clad with precast concrete, weathered steel, and dark grey basalt stone. Accents of Brazilian Ipe siding, polished stucco, and zinc composite panel complete the material palette ensemble.

Highlights: Spread out over three levels, this multi-generational family home offers approximately 10,260 square feet of living space with six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two powder rooms. The basement level is perfect for entertaining with its wine cellar. There is also an additional 2,105 square feet of outdoor entertaining space — cabana, roof deck, and balconies. Lastly, there is an impressive 2,000 square foot, six-car garage.

The shroud of textures and natural hues are enhanced throughout the day, as the sunlight dances and dapples across each elevation. Ribbons of steel-framed glass spread in large vertical and horizontal expanses.

A minimalist approach to interior finishes focuses attention on the architecture and precise detailing of the house. Highlights of the exterior palette make their way into the house with a refined use of weathered steel panels and basalt stone floors and walls.

What We Love: This wonderful family home offers large gathering spaces along with plenty of space for family members to have their privacy. We are loving the light hardwood flooring, sleek and stylish furnishings, and stunning living room with its dark grey basalt stone fireplace. The sumptuous backyard area with its expansive swimming pool and rooftop deck would be fantastic hangout spots in the summertime.

This dwelling provides a graceful mix of both gathering and intimate living spaces. The interiors connect seamlessly to the patio where you will find an outdoor shower for rinsing off after a dip in the swimming pool.

The home’s structure consists of a steel perimeter frame to support the lateral load of the large precast concrete panels. The 53 unique panels extend full height, with no horizontal joints, and some reach over 30 feet tall. Wood trusses provide clear spans, creating the opportunity for the interior of the house to have no load-bearing walls.
