casa del sueno

Collaboration with a builder/client with an appreciation and superb knowledge of the Spanish vernacular and a personal fondness for "Hacienda-style" architecture allowed the creation of this most "Spanish" of homes. Built of energy-efficient, thick-walled insulated concrete forms (ICF) and metal framing, this casual, very liveable home is "authentic" from its courtyard embracing plan to arrary of imported doors, flooring, hand-made mahogony windows, Cancun red limestone counters and xeriscape landscape. A fountained entry court funnels guests to a tile-floored, burnished plaster-walled interior topped with massive wood beams and offering views of the main courtyard plaza. Drystack, "chinked" flagstone, hand-trowelled stucco, clay tile roof, exposed rafters and turned wood columns convey the feel of old Mexico. Covered terraces and "outdoor room" provide shelter from the relentless Texas sun.
