Mockingbird Property, Dallas, Texas: Russell Buchanan, Buchanan Architecture

Note: This piece first appeared in PaperCity as part of Celebrating Angles and Inspirations. In it, we ask some of the most talented and innovative architects in the area to showcase their premier properties that continue to expand Dallas’ reputation for beautiful living.

Russell Buchanan

Designed for a young family in the stone import and fabrication business, the residence is a 4,410 square-foot-home located on Mockingbird Lane. The main building is a simple rectilinear shape, designed in plan using five equal squares.  Adjacent to the main building is an entry vestibule clad entirely in onyx slab.  Completing the composition is a polished black stone wall which provides privacy and security from the busy street.

The exterior detailing is crisp and pragmatic allowing the composition of the building masses to be simple and unadorned.  At the entry vestibule, light and translucent stone provide a warm and inviting transitional space.  All the lower level public spaces share light and access to a private outdoor courtyard.  A camouflage netting drape provides a late morning sunscreen to the large glazed opening.

Douglas fir glulam (glued, laminated) beams and floor decking provide a sense of warmth and color to the space.  Performance-based building materials, energy efficient systems, solar orientation and sun-screening techniques allow the residence to operate effectively with minimal annual expense and limited carbon footprint.  buchananarchitecture.com
