TreeHouse’s second retail store, located in Dallas, is projected to be net-zero energy — an unprecedented first for a big-box retailer in Texas, as well as for any home improvement store of its kind nationwide. During the day, the 25,000 square foot building will be lit almost entirely by natural light, facilitated in large part by generous clerestory windows, while solar arrays on a sawtooth roof will maximize energy from the sun. The design ultimately seeks to reflect the same environmentally friendly values and beautiful design TreeHouse encourages for its clientele. My role as a designer at Lake|Flato Architects on this project included interior design, retail design, and construction administration.
