If you love great design (and adult beverages) we have the event for you! Join the Dallas Architecture Forum on October 30 for an evening exploring one of the most compelling residences in Dallas. The evening centers on the stunning Park & Pearl Residence in the Dallas Arts District. Home to an impressive collection of bold contemporary art, this full-floor industrial masterpiece features interior architecture by Tom Kundig and interior design by Emily Summers.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, and the chance to see the residence and hear from some members of the design team while enjoying the company of fellow design enthusiasts. Advanced ticked purchase is required and pace is limited so reserve your tickets today!
We don’t have to tell you that opportunities like this are rare. The Park & Pearl Residence stuns, not only as an example of forward-thinking industrial residential design, but as a gallery-like tour of contemporary art from artists like James Brooks to Tomory Dodge.
About the design:
From a full floor shell apartment, the design team carved out interior spaces that celebrate the client’s cutting-edge style and smartly unconventional approach to modern American life. The elegant, oval-shaped building perimeter is wrapped with floor to ceiling windows. Both the floor plan and architectural finishes were conceived to capitalize on the expansive 360 degree views and simultaneously mitigate the immense amount of Texas sunlight that would pour into the space.
The disciplined commitment to light absorption carried into secondary finishes as well with inserted broad strokes of hot rolled blackened steel, black walnut, and bright red lacquered metal walls. Living spaces, entertaining areas, and bedrooms are expertly located along the perimeter, unique views framed in each. Down the center of the unit are expansive corridors; the spine of the apartment. They provide storage, traffic flow, and gallery space. Clerestory windows allow light to inconspicuously graze the corridors without fully revealing the source.
Aesthetically, the interior design extends the industrial architectural dialogue while avoiding loft clichés. Plush rugs, deep color tones, and bold curves create inviting gathering areas with instinctual traffic patterns encouraging people to explore the windows and views. Multifunctional rooms with custom furniture pieces function well, both for everyday activities and a robust entertaining calendar.
