Driven By Design: Dallas with Cadillac October 2014

The third stop on the Driven By Design architectural tour, curated by Architectural Digest: Dallas. Once again, guests were treated to an exclusive tour of the city’s most dynamic public and private spaces. Next generation 2015 Escalades chauffeured guests in style as they made four stops: Museum Tower, Urban Reserve, Brookview Residence, and Museum Tower Residence. At each stop a renowned expert gave a behind-the-scenes look and background on the design of each project.

Museum Tower is a 42-story luxury residential high-rise building located in the heart of The Dallas Arts District, offering owners the rare distinction of living among the works of four Pritzker Prize-winning architects. Designed by Scott Johnson of Johnson Fain, the contemporary tower offers a collection of 115 residences in nine floor plans.

Urban Reserve is a modern, sustainable community situated on 14 hilly acres of land on the urban edge of Dallas. Envisioned as a “neighborhood where the common thread between residents is a passion for modern architecture,” the 50-home planned development is a true stand out. Guests toured: One Vanguard Way and UR22.

The Brookview Residence was designed by Smitharc Architects to evoke the character of a luxury destination resort with voluminous spaces that offer equal parts interior and exterior living entertaining. Dynamically rendered horizontal roofs shelter light-filled rooms classically arranged along axes to create a subtle balance of drama and repose.

Using The Dallas Arts District as inspiration, Emily Summers designed a home for the contemporary art lover in the Museum Tower.  The home’s aesthetic offers simple yet refined pieces and finishes, highlighted with hints of color.
