Featured: Turner-Boaz Architecture

1992. The Washington Redskins were Superbowl champs and box-office smash A Few Good Men had us all practicing our Nicholson impression.

It’s also when Weldon Turner and Brett Boaz, two HKS Architects alums, joined forces to form Turner|Boaz Architecture. The early training at one of the nation’s largest architecture firms instilled a high standard for quality drawings and specifications – one typical of commercial architecture.

(Like Turner|Boaz, Sebastian Construction Group models its construction practices after commercial firms.)

And just as their website says, Turner|Boaz Architecture strives to produce buildings that are “technically excellent, programmatically efficient and aesthetically delightful.” You can find Turner|Boaz Architecture projects delighting homeowners in nearly a dozen states, especially Texas.

There are a number of high end architecture firms doing excellent work in Texas. What’s the differentiator for Turner| Boaz?

Attention to detail.

“We decided that our drawings were going to be very good. We melded commercial with residential. We looked at Frank Welch’s level of detail and elevated that by bringing in our HKS experience and commercial drawings,” said Weldon Turner in a 2015 DHome feature.

Let’s take a closer look at two Turner|Boaz / Sebastian Construction Group collaborations:

Aledo Ranch

Aledo Ranch features stone walls and flooring, antique timber trusses and a geo-thermal HVAC system. The exterior boasts a standing seam copper roof and Texas limestone veneer, with HOPE’s steel windows and doors.

Interiors by David Corley Interior Design of Dallas.

Landscape Architecture by Dallas favorite, Armstrong-Berger.

Miramar Residence

Miramar Residence, a Spanish Colonial Revival, combined traditional stucco with Mankato cut stone detailing and clay tile roofing. Interior designer Lynn Sears Interiors of Dallas and landscape architect Armstrong Berger created an oasis in Highland Park.

Real estate blogger, Candy Evans commends the meticulous design and construction of the Miramar home:

“…built to enlighten and entertain crowds who can appreciate the attention to detail in the curved arches, the carved columns, and every hand finished tile in this John Sebastian-built mansion.”
