Tour de Force
Here’s a rare opportunity to step inside some of the most stunning modern houses in Dallas and meet the award-winning design and architecture teams behind them. Dallas Architecture Forum’s 365 Modern Living Cocktail Receptions keep it intimate, opening the doors to three residences on three different days. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are served at each house, along with remarks by each home’s design teams. Attendance is limited. Tickets are $75 to $300. Go to dallasarchitectureforum.org for more information.

Here’s the stellar 2015 lineup:

Tuesday, May 5, 6 – 8 pm: Legendary architecture firm Frank Welch and Associates’ design for a young family in Greenway Parks is lyrical in rift-cut white oak throughout, including a dramatic sculptural staircase in the entry. Carried out by Laura Lee Clark Interior Design, its contemporary furnishings and fabrics are neutral and natural, creating a backdrop for the homeowners’ colorful art collection. Landscape design is by Robert Bellamy Design.

Tuesday, May 19, 6 – 8 pm: This cutting-edge three-story residence is located on a West Dallas escarpment overlooking the Trinity River corridor and downtown. It was designed with materials including concrete, glass and stone for a Dallas philanthropist by Booziotis & Company Architects, with interior design by Susie Key Interiors. Landscape architecture is by Kevin Sloan Studio.

Wednesday, June 17, 6 – 8 pm: Bernbaum/Magadini Architects designed this residence on Meaders to accommodate its lush landscape, including 16 large live oaks. Natural materials support the naturalistic feel, with Lueders roughback limestone walls and rift-cut white oak cabinets, floors and trim. The modern interior furnishings are by Patrick McElwee Design and Sees Design. Take your drinks outside and enjoy the home’s multiple stone terraces and water features — including a koi pond and cantilevered pool — by Armstrong Berger Landscape Architecture and Hocker Design Group.
