The Carpenter Hotel in Austin was just named one of the “best new hotels in the world” by Travel and Leisure Magazine.

We’ve just received design approval for this dynamic new home in Dallas, and will start construction in a few months. The house features a very private street-facing facade clad in hand-made Roman brick, and a bright, open, double-height interior with 20’ceilings in the main living spaces. We’ll post more renderings of the design soon.
