Featured Architects Curated by Douglas Newby
There are many incredibly talented architects in Dallas beyond these featured. I will enjoy discussing those architects with you as well. Please enjoy learning about these top 100 architects who design homes in Modern style, Texas Modern style, and Eclectic and Traditional styles.
Architect Max Levy
Dallas architect Max Levy represents the national recognized work of the finest Dallas architects and is a link to the great Dallas architects of the past. Knowing the work of Max Levy, one better understands the full lineage of Dallas Modern architecture. He originally worked with Dallas architect Bud Oglesby of The Oglesby Group, widely recognized as one of the finest Modern architects in the second half of the 20th century. Max Levy was also influenced and close friends with Dallas architect Frank Welch, FAIA, who began his work with Texas Modern architect O’Neil Ford. You will see from Max Levy’s recent work in Greenway Parks, a modern home immersed in nature, and in Preston Hollow a sensitive and innovative expansion of a home designed by architect Steven Holl.
A. Gruppo Architects
Dallas architect Thad Reeves and Andrew Nance, AIA, are Modern architects who design Modern homes, construct Modern homes, and teach architecture to university students. Each home these modern architects design has a strong point of view and is sensitive to its site and surroundings.
Larry Boerder, Dallas Architect
Dallas architect Larry Boerder has become the Dallas architect most associated with the classic design of early 20th century estate homes. Larry Boerder enjoyed the advantage of growing up in a family of architects and has become the most prolific architect of significant Highland Park homes. Larry Boerder’s Master’s Thesis was on the homes on Swiss Avenue, the street which has the most important architect-designed homes in Dallas. Many of these great architects went on to design homes in Highland Park. Larry Boerder’s background is particularly interesting to me, as my first real study of architecture was also on Swiss Avenue. It is on Swiss Avenue where I sold a large percentage of the homes early in my career. On each of these homes on Swiss Avenue, I researched the architect and the history of the home. You will enjoy the graceful 21st century interpretation Larry Boerder brings to Highland Park and Preston Hollow estate homes.
Dallas Architect James Langford
Dallas architect James Langford is an artist, an academic, and foremost an architect. James Langford received his architectural degree from Harvard, worked for I.M. Pei, and in the tradition of great architects like Dallas architect David Williams who designed the development plan of Greenway Parks in the 1920s, James Langford did the development plan of Place des Vosges in the late 1990s. Also, like many great architects, James Langford designed commercial buildings along with his architecturally significant residential projects.

Signe and Jason Smith are the principals of Smitharc Architects. Dallas has some talented husband and wife architectural firms, and Signe and Jason Smith are one of the best. They have the ability to seemingly effortlessly modify a modest sized modern home and to design a dynamic and graceful large home that is elaborate and approachable.
