The client purchased the property and—before moving in—began some minor updates to the interior. Two months later, a massive EF3 tornado cut a path 10 miles long across northwest Dallas and leveled many homes around him. Although it mostly spared his house, the exterior was destroyed, so the client set forward to complete a much larger renovation for his property.

Creating a modern outdoor entertaining space that felt like an oasis in an area devastated by a natural disaster presented the main challenge. The company refurbished an existing focal wall in white and charcoal gray stucco, adding three massive custom-designed and fabricated stainless steel water scuppers. It also built a covered al fresco dining/cooking area with an oculus opening.

The layout of the space is broken into multiple entertaining areas and focal points to house the homeowner’s vast art collection.


A horizontal wood fence along the perimeter of the garden is stained the same charcoal gray as the stucco wall, so it acts as a shadow in the background.


Elongated stepper pads surrounded by synthetic turf mimic the massive skylights in the home’s main living room.


The oculus opening above the dining/cooking area highlights the custom Sputnik chandelier that was created for the space.


A variety of ornamental holly trees and other drought resistant plants will grow and encapsulate the garden in a living wall of greenery.


Square-pattern breeze block walls at each end of the space add a textural element and reflect the square cut-out design in the stucco feature wall.
