Casa di Luce, as christened by its owners is a single-family house located in Dallas and comprising 3,226 air-conditioned square feet on two levels. The house is constructed on an irregularly-shaped 8,075 square-foot site with significant variations in topography.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe size and odd shape of the site as well as the presence of a grand oak tree presented challenges that greatly influenced the design of the house.Save this picture!© Charles Davis Smith – AIAThe owners’ program called for the ability to work from home, entertain friends and associates, and host overnight guests. They also had a preference for courtyard homes due to the inherent indoor-outdoor relationships and the potential expansion of the living and entertaining spaces.Save this picture!© Charles Davis Smith – AIAThese desires were accommodated by creating a home that focuses on and expands into an intimate urban courtyard. The indoor-outdoor relationship is heightened by the use of very large sliding glass doors that fully retract. With these doors open, the living space and courtyard truly become one.Save this picture!© Charles Davis Smith – AIAThe principal interior materials consist of concrete floors, painted drywall walls and ceilings and statuary white marble countertops. The exterior is rendered in hard-troweled stucco and a rain screen of Roman travertine.Project gallerySee allShow lessCities in Asia Summer Programme: Studio SEL-SHAEventConference: Archmarathon Awards Presentations 2016Conference Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/782883/casa-di-luce-morrison-dilworth-plus-walls-plus Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMorrison Dilworth + WallsOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDallasUnited StatesPublished on March 02, 2016Cite: “Casa di Luce / Morrison Dilworth + Walls” 02 Mar 2016.
