Dallas architect Cliff Welch has taken his inspiration for the project from modern architecture of the last century and has designed four homes that buck the current trend to build look-alike McMansions and will offer buyers smaller, moderately priced contemporary homes that are energy efficient, purposefully and artfully built and easy to maintain.
Welch worked with the late Dallas modernist Bud Oglesby, and he has been a leader in the effort to save and restore 20th century architecture in the area. He was featured in Texas Architect as one of five leading young design professionals and was chosen by the Dallas AIA as Young Architect of the Year.
His designs for the Ten201 homes include clarity of form, the use of high-quality regional materials, an appreciation of natural light and the aim to create architecture today that is worthy of restoration by future generations.

Here is a floor plan for 10201A. I was unable to get the other floor plans to open. I'm sure future visits to the site will find that problem solved. I will revisit this project as more information is made available.

Here are photos of the immediate vicinity. The homes will be built approximately one mile from White Rock Lake in an area that hosts an all-modern and mid-century home tour every spring.
