Perfectly Perched

The approximately 2,580 square foot Perch Haus rests in the heart of East Dallas on the shore of White Rock Lake, bordering the popular 9-mile trail that encircles it. A grand “vanishing point” entry stair opens itself up to guests, leading to a steel-tiered landscape and a front door roughly 12 feet above street level. The pronounced second floor cantilever commands the attention of the hundreds of cyclists and runners that pass by daily.
