Wishlist Wednesday: Cliff Welch, Will You Be My Architect?

Published August 23, 2012 by Amy Curry

I’m mixing it up a little this week, mostly because I’ve been inspired. While driving home from White Rock Coffee a few weeks ago with my pal Joanna England, we passed this amazing house on East Lake Highlands. I don’t know if you’ve realized this about me yet, but I kinda dig mid-century modern design, and this place is THE perfect mid-century model without having to pour in all the money of updating an older home.

It’s listed by David Collier at David Griffin and Company Realtors for $550,00. There’s no pictures listed yet, but you can see plans online. Turns out, it was designed by architect extraordinaire Cliff Welch. I went to his website and checked out his design portfolio, and folks, this guy is kind of a badass.

According to Art House Dallas:

“His firm’s focus is modern architecture, concentrating on residential, interiors, and small-scale commercial work. He has been a leading resource and proponent for the restoration and preservation of post-war modernism in Dallas.”

Look at all those clean lines…I’m in heaven!

A Tyler, Texas native, Cliff has local and national design accolades coming out the wazoo. And this is how I know this guy is cool: he also designs tree houses. Cliff, meet your new biggest fan.
