Durst House
Architect: Bruce Goff
323 Tynebrook Lane

World reknown Oklahoma architect, Bruce Goff designed this house in the heavily wooded Piney Point area of Houston. The circular design of the house is inspired by the location of the house on a cul de sac. The motif is shown in the 3 large windows that appear almost to be giant eyes. Semi-circular bays also occur in the living room, terrace, master bedroom, and guest bedrooms.

The house is one of Houstonís most famous and has been featured in several magazine articles and books on Goff over the years.
