Casa Angosta by Cunningham Architects

September 2, 2011

Cunningham Architects designed the Casa Angosta in Dallas, Texas.



The house is located on a narrow wooded site flanked by a creek and a railroad track, a unique condition for an otherwise typical Texas suburban neighborhood. Accessed by a 250 foot long drive from the street, the 4,300 square foot house and pool stretch the remaining length of the property. An elongated plan allows for multi-directional views from each room and appropriate climatic orientation of the house.

The first level includes a masonry garage and a glazed living area, separated by a decomposed granite motor court breezeway. These elements support the long and narrow Cor-ten steel clad second level which includes bedrooms, gallery, office, family room and utilities. The materials used are in direct response to the adjacent railroad, economics and a desire for the house to blend in with its site.
