Big Sky

In lieu of subdividing the prairie into typical twenty acre “ranchettes” constellations of one acre lots are clustered to gravel roads that traverse the draws and low points of a 1000 acre piece of the Blackland Prairie. Programmed as a bedroom community to Dallas and Fort Worth, 770 acres of the center – a lake of grass – is preserved so that the original attraction of the site is not degraded as phases complete. When fully realized, no enclave of houses can see to other enclaves, preserving for each homeowner, contemplative views of the sky meeting the horizon line.
