It didn’t take long for Shannon Driscoll and Booker T. Washington alum Kayli House Cusick to decide to start a business together. The two met at a weekend pop-up studio in Oak Cliff and each realized that the other had her missing piece. Driscoll had been running adult art classes from her studio, and Cusick had written a stack of curriculum for kids’ art classes that she was ready to use. The two joined forces, and in 2010 opened what is now the bustling studio and shop Oil and Cotton in Oak Cliff.

This amazing home is the result of a collaboration between Matt Holley, the developer of Kessler Woods just across the street, and modernist architect Doug Hildinger. The pier-and-beam foundation, some exterior brick and some framing from a 1945 ranch house were used for the footprint. New framing, plumbing, electrical, insulation, heating and air-conditioning systems were all used to build the new structure.

Adhering to green construction principles, the following materials were used: high-efficiency SEALECTION® 500 open-cell polyurethane foam insulation, windows with thermal broken frames and 1-inch thermal super-efficient Low-E glass, an HVAC system that is divided into two zones and uses a Carrier 14 Seer Puron heat pump unit with back-up electric heating strips, and two 50 gallon electric water heaters on a circulation that will provide on-demand hot water.

Understanding the Modern Architecture of Cliff May with Barry Berkus {Video}

05/14/2014

Video + Photos / Russ Spencer

Screen Shot 2014-05-13 at 2.22.41 PM

Hear renowned modern architect Barry Berkus discuss the inspiration, style, and architecture of Cliff May–“The Father of the California Ranch Home.” Blending ranch and hacienda, the 1968 Cliff May Ranch House in the Santa Ynez Valley offers a prime location for this interview, since it was recently renovated by Berkus.

“Architects think of modernism as Corbusier’s machine. And what we’re talking about today is something that has a heart and soul.” – Barry Berkus 

 

Berkus and his firm opened up the structure, paying homage to May’s original vision for the residence.

Cliff May’s Style

“First and foremost, Cliff May homes are unique in their relationship to the outdoors. They are Californian, built for individuals who want to erase the lines between indoors and outdoors and embrace the spectacular Southern California climate. And in an environment where the sun shines 300 plus days a year and the average high temperature is 75 degrees, why would anyone want to live differently?

It is not uncommon in Cliff May homes to find that every room in the house has a connection to the outdoors. Floor-to-ceiling glass takes the place of walls to bring light and nature in, creating a relationship to the outdoors that is as much a part of the home as the decor. Perhaps the San Diego Union put it best when it featured an original Cliff May design under the heading: “Home with a Garden in Every Room.”” (from Ranchostyle.com)

  • 2646 Materhorn Drive, Dallas TX
  • 2611 Andrea Lane, Dallas, TX 75228
  • The Casa View Oaks Neighborhood – “Houses in Casa View Oaks are representative of May’s signature design: an open floor plan with an abundance of space and light beneath a low-pitched gable roof. Large expanses of glass—in both windows and doors—were used to create an open feeling and ease in circulation. Outdoor living was encouraged by the incorporation of patios and barbeque and picnic areas, in many cases doubling the “living space” of each house.

    One of the selling points of the new May houses in Casa View was their modern conveniences, including disposals, built in ranges, a touch-plate lighting wall and radios with speakers throughout the house.” (From Presevationdallas.org)
