Surrounded by exotic plants, the Vertical House is a modern oasis in the middle of Dallas. The structure rises 60-feet tall, flanked by a pair of screened walls that provide both shade and privacy. In contrast to the opaque front facade, the rear is encased by walls of glass offering views of the lush tropical garden on every level. The interior pallet consists of white walls and polished concrete floors with a Carrara marble accent wall running the height of the home. A glass enclosed stairway connects all three stories, leading to a rooftop terrace sitting above the trees to afford rare views of the city's skyline.
