Architect Michael Linehan was born and raised in Dallas. He received his architecture degree at the University of Notre Dame and a master’s degree in architecture at the University of Detroit. Notre Dame has become the prominent architecture school in the field of classical architecture. Michael Linehan has an academic foundation in both classical and modern architecture.
His modern work expresses his commitment to the site and how the house relates to the site above a particular style. Inspired by the Bauhaus movement, the design of his Dallas modern home in Lakewood emphasizes the environment. The majority of Michael Linehan’s work can be found on the East Coast and in Baltimore, but one of his finest homes is in Dallas at 7243 Tokalon Drive.
