This addition entails the added value of a second level to this classic, "Culture Gulch" residence adjacent to Turtle Creek in Dallas, TX. The new second level dog legs into front yard of the property, maximizing the allowable area usage for the site while re-orienting the entertainment area of the floor plan around views to the cypress lined banks of Turtle Creek. The horizontal emphasis of the building is broken down to the historic human scale through the extension of the existing brick buttressing structure as the support for the level two patio bays.
