Architect Lionel Morrison is known around Dallas, Texas, for his modernist designs, including the city's Museum of Art and numerous other award-winning projects. Among his residential commissions is a recently listed home in the popular Turtle Creek area, north of downtown. Sited along a narrow and irregular lot, the home contrasts an austere facade with an L-shaped interior that opens around a courtyard and pool.
The home's current owners wanted a home where they could easily host guests and expand the entertaining space outdoors. By proposing the enclosed courtyard, Morrison achieved the homeowners goals while creating a sense of privacy along the narrow, .18-acre lot. Public and private spaces are also clearly separated, with the main living spaces located at the front and the bedrooms along a hallway on one side.
Offering over 3,100 square feet of interior space, the home comes with two spacious bedrooms—both with en suite bathrooms—as well as a half bath. The main entertaining space downstairs is complemented by a cozy media room and home office on the second floor. A three-car garage, trimless LED lighting, a geothermal HVAC system, and automated Lutron shades round out the home's additional features.
