Build Mindfully


Build Mindfully


Ripple D+B is a builder of modern homes in Dallas, Texas. We believe that a significant shift in home design and construction is underway, as new technology and sustainable building materials/methods collide with changing cultural desires to tread softly on the earth and move towards our urban centers. We strive to be at the forefront of this trend in Dallas, creating mindfully designed homes that are as delightful to look at as they are to live in.

The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.
— Charles Dickens



Based on AIA Awarded Grotto Concept by Architect Josh Nimmo



"Homes were being ... replaced by massive homes that maximize the site to the brim ... with little regard for their respective surroundings. Grotto ... from Nimmo Architecture, at its very core, bucks this M Street trend with a modern design system that is sensible both inward and outward."
- Michael Friebele - American Institute of Architecture (source)





Masonry Structure: Insulated concrete block from Omniblock provides an airtight, rot-free, termite-proof, thermally efficient, and structurally superior wall system
