The Preston Hollow residence was designed for a couple seeking a new home for their growing art collection. Located on an unusually shaped lot of just over 1 acre in the Preston Hollow neighborhood of Dallas, the home is sited to maximize the views from the home and create a vanishing point to the horizon from the primary living spaces. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThese views are framed by a series of exterior and interior planes that allow the landscape to extend from exterior to interior. Located toward the back of the lot the house creates a courtyard of privacy with the lawn and pool terrace as the backdrop, and in doing so creates long views from the front of the home, creating the feeling of an expansive landscape. Buffered by the landscape on the sweeping edge of the lot, the home provides the privacy on an otherwise exposed corner lot.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Scott FrancesBodron+Fruit designed the architecture and interiors with a rich but subdued palette, using the natural hues from the marble, limestone, and white oak floors to complement the owner’s art collection. Furniture was selected for its clean lines and comfort; united in tone, but varied in texture. Numerous architectural details abound, such as the decorative pivoting metal gate and custom door hardware, to provide the finishing touches.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesIn an effort to mitigate the Texas sun, the west side of the home is largely solid with light colored limestone, while the south and east sides of the home have large expanses of glass with deep overhangs to provide natural daylight and minimal heat gain. To actively control the sun, the home employs motorized shading when needed. Save this picture!© Scott FrancesThe home features 26 solar panels along the roof to reduce its energy consumption and at times return power to the grid.  To further reduce the environmental impact of the home, all stormwater from the roof surface is directed to a 10,000-gallon underground water cistern that is used in the irrigation of the site. Other energy-conscious features include geothermal heating and cooling as well as the use of foam insulation.Save this picture!© Scott FrancesProject gallerySee allShow lessArchive and Artifact: The Virtual and the PhysicalExhibition OpeningM·Cube / MVRDVSelected Projects Share Houses United States Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Lead Architects: Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Bodron+Fruit Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img ArchDaily “COPY” Photographs:  Scott Frances Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2015 Manufacturers: Western Window Systems, Walker Zanger, Alkusari, Valli & Valli Svend Fruit AIA, Jason Trevino CopyHouses•Dallas, United States Projects Preston Hollow Residence / Bodron+Fruit CopyAbout this officeBodron+FruitOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDallasUnited StatesPublished on October 16, 2018Cite: “Preston Hollow Residence / Bodron+Fruit” 16 Oct 2018.

The winner will be announced at a gala dinner following the Scottish Bakers Annual Conference on 5 May.“With thousands upon thousands of pies, scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits sold in Scotland every day, our bakers work hard to keep us all going,” said Alasdair Smith of Scottish Bakers. “So we are delighted to once again be giving Scottish Bakers the chance to shine and showcase their skills, but we need people at home to vote, so log on now.”For judging, the goods are split into six categories – scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits – which are divided into three regions: Northern, Central and Southern Scotland. Category winners are invited to put forward a case for Craft Baker, Retail Craft Baker and Wholesale Baker for a chance to be crowned Scottish Baker of the Year.To mark the start of the competition, students from Pennyland Primary School, Miller Academy, Mount Pleasant Primary School, Thurso High School and North Highland College will take part in a ‘Generation Game’ style bake-off on 21 February.The competition will be judged by Gary Reid, MD of Scottish Baker of the Year 2017 Reids of Caithness, and Mich Turner, Scottish Bakers’ ambassador.“Everyone loves a tasty treat from their local baker,” said the face of the Scottish Baker of the Year competition Michelle McManus, “so I am calling on all of us bakery buffs up and down the land to vote for our favourite local baker to help them win the Scottish Baker of the Year crown for 2018.”last_img read more
