Chad Dorsey Design together with GREER Interior Design has designed this striking modern family house located in the heart of Lakewood, a neighborhood in East Dallas, Texas. The structure’s clean lines and simple massing helped to create a striking silhouette that captures the essence of modern architecture.

The selection of wood sidings as the primary cladding material not only adds a touch of natural texture but also establishes a strong connection between the built environment and the surrounding landscape. The exterior of the house is adorned with carefully selected wood sidings, creating a play of light and shadow that evolves throughout the day.

The tactile quality of the wood not only enhances the visual appeal but also provides a sensory experience for inhabitants and visitors alike. The use of wood not only serves an aesthetic purpose but also aligns with our commitment to sustainability. The natural material not only reduces the carbon footprint of the construction but also ages gracefully, ensuring that this house becomes more beautiful with time.

Blending natural materials, indoor/outdoor living, and incorporating artistic yet fun minimal furnishings drove the design of this project. This 5,500-square-foot residence includes a variety of spaces for the homeowners to lounge, entertain, listen to music, or simply curl up and read a good book.
