“Timeless, meaningful architecture…” with a focus on “…regional materials, local climate, and surrounding context.”
Sounds like Welch Architecture, alright. We’ve had the pleasure of working with Cliff Welch of Welch Architecture (now known as Welch | Hall Architects) on our own timeless modern projects, like the Turtle Creek Residence, as seen below.
With dozens of features in publications ranging from Dallas Modern to Luxe and Patron to PaperCity, Welch| Hall Architects is one of the leading voices in modern architecture in Texas. Earlier in his career, founder Cliff Welch was featured in Texas Architect as one of five young professionals leading the way into the coming century and has been honored as Dallas American Institute of Architects’ Young Architect of the Year.
In a profile on Modern Dallas, Welch credits his inspiration as “modern architecture of the last century, emphasizing clarity of form and appreciation of natural light.”
And it’s no wonder. This bright light of modern architecture apprenticed under one of its masters, Bud Oglesby. Oglesby is credited with being the most influential modernist in Dallas in the last century. Realtor and design aficionado Douglas Newby, owner of encyclopedic Significant Homes website, described Oglesby’s work as having “a relaxed elegance, exploring light and accommodating a family’s lifestyle.”
A 2015 interview on popular real estate blog, Candy’s Dirt catalogues Cliff Welch’s contributions to the design community:
“Welch is the past president of the Dallas Architectural Foundation and taught graduate-level architecture classes at UT Arlington. He is a past executive board member of the Dallas Chapter AIA, also serving two years as their Commissioner of Design, and has chaired multiple chapter events, including various home tours. He also served as a design awards juror for other chapters around the state.”
