.…on building $1 million homes in Frisco with grass roofs and courtyards, via the Dallas Morning News.
Who says yards are just meant for out front and out back?
Sagar’s company is building a Tapestry community of 121 homes in east Frisco with eco-friendly grass rooftops and lawned terraces and courtyards built into each new abode, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Sagar, an architect who lives in Bangalore, India—and racks up endless air miles flying to the U.S.—told the DMN’s Mitchell Parton that he’s built these grass-infused homes in India and thought they would be appealing in North Texas, too. “The reason it works all the way on the other side of the planet, for a completely different lifestyle in different climates and everything, is because it is authentically designed around a family’s needs,” he told the DMN.
Sagar bought the 56-acre site for the development featuring 900 trees along Rowlett Creek because of the “issues” presented by the land’s natural features, not in spite of them, the DMN notes. For more about the project, read the DMN story here.
