The Caruth Boulevard Residence, located in Dallas, Texas designed by the Dallas-based architect, Tom Reisenbichler combines luxury with green design.


Sustainability played a very important role in developing this project. Solar panels, the use of recycled materials, the care towards the landscape with the trees and the lush untouched vegetation are a few of the green strategies employed in this residential design.

The house was designed to fit into the landscape:, as described by the architect “Integrated tightly into the large iconic trees on the site, this house uses traditional home proportions to blend with the neighborhood.
