Fort Worth, TX
Located on a heavily wooded site, this home takes advantage of the natural characteristics of the site. The site was broken into a series of "streets" with courtyards and open spaces defined by walls of native limestone. The streets follow a open-air descent to the native landscape at the lower end of the site. Bisecting the site with the residence created two distinctively different gardens: a shade garden with the large trees and native vegetation and a garden of soft grasses that overlooks the river valley.
