Willis Property, Dallas, Texas: Paul Turney, Turney & Associates

Paul Turney

When Dave and Betsy Willis made the decision to move from Calgary to Texas, they hired architect Paul Turney to work with them on the design of their new home.  Having previously lived in the South, their desire was to have a Louisiana-style house.

One of the main features of their new home is a deep porch with French doors across the entire front of the house, along with a second floor balcony supported by 20-foot tall round, Doric columns. The porch also has a narrow exterior stair accessing the balcony, something characteristic of the Louisiana houses of the late architect A. Hays Town. The family room, kitchen, and guest house all look out onto a brick courtyard with a fountain. Some of the interior design features include large double hung windows to the floor, a freestanding curved stair in the entry, and wide plank pine flooring. turneyarchitects.com
