Space and proportion, spirit and architectural roots. Things are not always bigger in Texas. Sometimes they are better. Houston-based Dillon Kyle and his architectural team respect the design heritage of their home state but don't get bogged down in the twee, in clichéd nostalgia. I love the scope of the work. I love that the firm can't be boxed in a certain style. And if it's possible to love a carport then I think I'm smitten. You will see why after the jump.
