Hillside Retreat

On a peaceful street near the top of West Lake Hills, this striking home designed by Dick Clark + Associates unfolds behind a screen of mature Live Oak trees. Composed as a series of layers the facade transforms from solid at one end, grounded in the site, to completely transparent at the other end, floating over the pool in a breathtaking cantilever.
