Spanish Renaissance Gaywood Residence
An 8,800 square foot residence set within Mayflower Estates of North Dallas is perfect example of harmony and proportion. A Spanish Renaissance Revival style, the goal of the house was to cross borders and appeal to a more modern attitude, a modernized interpretation of traditional architecture.

Against a traditionally Spanish, white masonry facade with a red-clay tile roof and a series of arched entryways, the main tiered, cast stone entrance stands in relief. The entry is detailed in a classical Renaissance style.
Inside, a great central spine runs through the house with a focus on axial relationships that create focal points and a sense of movement through the spaces. The relatively shallow site inspired the concept of creating a courtyard pool area enclosed with a “jewel box” Spanish Renaissance cabana along the back property line.
