The Bonney Brier Residence is being recognized this year with a John Staub Award in the category of Residential Design, over 5,000 square feet. The house draws from vernacular Texas farmhouse styles with a modern open plan that incorporates the surrounding gardens as living spaces.
The house is also featured in Nice House, a book by Samuel G. White that examines the possibility of residential architecture to support the fabric of a neighborhood with livable scale and congenial spaces.
Established by the Texas Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art in 2011, the John Staub Awards recognize excellence in classical and vernacular traditions in architecture, interior design, and craftsmanship.
The John Staub Awards gala honoring the award recipients will be held on October 20, 2012, at the Dallas Country Club. For more information about the event, see the ICAA – Texas Chapter website events page.
