Morrison Dilworth + Walls has designed a single-family house called by its owners Casa di Luce. Located in Dallas, Texas, USA, the house comprises 3,226ft² (300m²).
The 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.
These 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.
The 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.
