French Country Home Architect

The owners live in a very traditional home in Dallas but for an East Texas weekend retreat wanted something entirely different and asked residential architect Michael Lyons to design a contemporary home. The home is set on a high point on 800 acres and has a “pinwheel” layout which affords a 360 degree view of the beautiful surroundings. The style is contemporary, yet very casual and welcoming. The exterior features stained clear all-heart redwood siding, a “paint grip” standing-seam metal roof and over 80 wood windows. During the master planning phase with architect Lyons, the location for a new 50-acre lake was determined, along with a new one-mile road that follows along the lake, which provides a view of the home, leading to a switchback that ends at this contemporary home’s entrance (opposite side of the lake view).
