When some very well known art collectors asked Bud Oglesby to design their Highland Park home, they couldn’t have known that it would be the last residential building the sought-after modern architect would dream up.

I know we call it “Monday Morning Millionaire,” but this house is truly priceless. And so is this opportunity.

If you’ve always wanted to shuffle through an Oglesby-designed home (and who wouldn’t?) the Dallas Architecture Forum is hosting a reception inside Oglesby’s final modern masterpiece in Highland Park tomorrow at 6 p.m. You can also gawk at the new owners’ incredible collection of contemporary art, all lit by the floor-to-ceiling windows that surround the home.

It’s all part of the forum’s 365 Modern Living series. You can find out more about the event, and even buy tickets, on the Dallas Architecture Forum’s website. The talk will set you back $75, and the design team will have a brief talk at around 6:45 p.m. Valet parking is provided, and attire is business/cocktail.

    Wow! Don't know if you knew that the torn down home on the lot on Wander was also an Ogelsby. The interior was fabulous. Many unique touches. There was a copper downspout that ran through the interior front entry way. Sounded like music when it rained. Home had detachable screens that could be moved depending on how large a group was being entertained. Truly a unique gem. So sorry to see it go.
