Western Décor with a Modern Twist

Who was involved?
Architect: Nunzio Marc DeSantis Architects, Dallas Railing
Installer: Texas Railing Systems

What was the challenge?
Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort and Golf Course faced drought conditions in 2012, resulting in the elimination of its nine-hole course. In 2017, the clubhouse suffered a devastating fire, destroying the building entirely. Because the clubhouse was essential to the guest experience, the entire resort closed. Two years later, the new 47,000-square-foot clubhouse, designed by Nunzio Marc DeSantis Architects of Dallas, opened. An outdoor dining area added to the clubhouse redesign, and with it, the need for railing to seamlessly define the dining area yet offer unobstructed views of the landscape.



What was the solution? What products were involved?
Ultra-tec cable and Invisiware® fittings were installed by Texas Railing System and contributed to the modern hill country design theme using sleek, nearly invisible hardware. A steel 2-inch square end post with ½-inch flat bar inline posts and a 2.5-inch x .5-inch flat bar top rail with a hardwood cap finish the railing project.



What were the results?
The new design brings a modern twist on western décor and doesn't stray too far from its Hill Country origins.
