Residential Architecture: Caruth Boulevard Residence by Tom Reisenbichler: “..Architect Tom Reisenbichler has designed the Caruth Boulevard residence in Dallas, Texas, USA..In our world where many associate sustainable (green) design with a bohemian lifestyle, while others consider luxury wasteful, this house is designed to prove they are not exclusive. Integrated tightly into the large iconic trees on the site, this house uses traditional home proportions to blend with the neighborhood. The horizontal lines of the design tie the home to the land, while the roof and balcony reach into the trees making them integral to the home..The design concepts emphasize the entertaining lifestyle of the owner / architect, with open plans that integrate indoor and outdoor spaces. The first level uses a central core (wooden box) as the main organizing element around which public spaces flow. This LEED Gold designed home features many sustainable strategies, from photovoltaic solar panels and recycled materials to native plants that are drought tolerant, every detail of sustainability is considered..”  Extensive glazing, natural light; interesting form, materiality and interior volumes; contextual sensibility, sustainability..
