PD1 -2 has both a residential and non- residential component. Those guidelines applicable exclusively to residential or non- U residential uses are called out by land use. Those guidelines not specified as residential or C non-residential are applicable to both land uses. i There are two primary purposes accomplished through this document. These purposes 0 are: Z 1. Construction Quality: Modern construction technology is most adept at allowing / facilitating the delivery of traditional and historic architectural details and themes through cost effective and fast building methods/ systems. An industry of preformed shapes, plasticized material, faux materials, attachment systems, material unitization, etc. has arisen around replication of traditional and historic architectural details. However, visual replication often fails to also deliver the essence of craftsmanship that is so much a part of the traditions that the market reveres. The Town of Westlake seeks to preserve, in the creation of a Catalonian/European Village look, the evidence of artisanship and craftsmanship that is so essential to that look. Therefore, these guidelines establish material, dimension, and workmanship standards aimed at use of materials that can be crafted and engagement of construction techniques. 2. Capturing Essential Visual Qualities of the Catalonian/European Archetype: Overall planning and building arrangement should create a compact pedestrian -scaled environment mimicking the scale and livability of a small, Catalonian/European Village that has evolved organically over hundreds, if not thousands of years. Individual buildings should be designed to reinforce the pedestrian -orientation of the village, with an extreme focus on attention to detail and the inclusion of four-sided building design within the framework of the small Catalonian/European Village upon which this community is based. The delivery system will be built around construction details, methods, and systems based on modern veneer construction. Closure, edge/corner, portal, and base details associated with veneer construction will be designed to emulate the construction method of the medieval Catalonian/European Village. The present day architect, builder, and tradesman is faced with a need to translate the essence of the style through creative construction details that yield the similar appearance of Catalonian/European construction and detailing. The following Guidelines are intended to address these two important outcomes and in so doing promote a project for Westlake that is truly unique in the Metroplex and an achievement for both the developer and the Town. The term "APPROVAL" used herein means approval of the PD Site Plan as submitted in accordance with the governing PD1 -2 ordinance and any other written approvals received from the Town Manager and/or their designee for any deviation from these Design Guidelines. Opportunities to appeal to the Town of Westlake Planning and Zoning Commission and Town Council are in place if approval is not provided by Town staff.

The on-going additive system of village development over time is replaced by design which seeks to define key visual features that the one-time project construction must embody. This guideline addresses features related to the construction of retaining walls. Aspects of Wall Appearance: The appearance of retaining and foundation walls in Catalonia/Europe is a result of 2 conditions which influence construction. The first is construction technology, meaning that a lack of heavy equipment, concrete block, and concrete systems resulted in a wall that was not simply a veneer but a true structural section. Also, the total dependence on human labor to place and transport the stones set a range of feasible sizes that could be used for construction. The second is material which means that most stone was gathered close to the ground surface, giving the rock a mottled matrix of color. The fact that poured in place concrete was not generally employed means that the foundations were stone, making the entire wall a gravity wall. The larger foundation stones rose up from the ground, making the base course of the wall construction. The highly irregular nature of gathered stones (varying size and shape) meant that constant course leveling was necessary to maintain structural integrity. The level continuity of courses is essential to structural strength. More specifically, these aspects of wall appearance are: ❑ Coursing Patterns: Proper coursing is achieved with highly irregular stones. The constant use of smaller stones in between larger ones is helpful to maintain course leveling. The stones should be laid in a manner that sets the stone on its broader/ flatter face. Stones should not set vertically or at odd angles but lay within the wall just as they would lie on the ground. This gives the wall section a basic stability. Therefore the course pattern must be structural. A structural course pattern has the following qualities: i. Larger stones are laid within the wall just as they would lay on the ground. ii. Placement of a larger stone on another larger stone employs the use of smaller stones to level irregularities in the larger stone form, thereby creating a relatively level resting place for the larger stone being set. ❑ Straightness: Vertical Straightness: The constant course leveling and the capacity of the wall to somewhat move with the movement of the earth, means that the vertical wall was highly irregular in most instances. However, this irregularity was not a product of poor workmanship but the varied use of stone. The face of a larger stone would slightly project or recede because the face is not flat or square. Therefore, the wall can be reasonably plumb but not flat straight. This level of vertical irregularity will have to be imposed by the mason where stone is a veneer over concrete block or cast in place concrete. This can be done by varying the thickness of mortar between the structural wall and the veneer and having a larger masonry ledge. Horizontal Straightness: Lacking heavy equipment and having to rely upon the wall to do most of the grade accommodation work instead of people, retaining walls often had slight irregularities in horizontal alignment. The job of the retaining wall was to level the ground for the building construction. Therefore, the wall appears to rise up from an undulating ground line to create a level top course at the building. In a contemporary development condition where the project seeks to use all land within the legal property lines, retaining walls tend Ordinance 760 to become a reflection of those property lines. Thereby, the wall ceases to support the building and now supports the site. While property line articulation is unavoidable, the horizontal alignment should take every opportunity to be determined by grade condition The extent to which natural grade informs wall alignment, the more it will reflect the spirit of the village setting. ❑ Texture: Retaining walls exhibit a great deal of texture because the mortar is deep set, giving the wall open voids between stones and courses which amplify the visual texture of the large stones and small leveling stones. These voids should not be filled with mortar although deep set mortar may be used. rd n Corners: Corners tell whether a wall is truly structural or simply a veneer over a structural substrate. The following picture illustrates a structural corner. Note the interlocking of the coursed stones, called toothing. Note that the stone laid in the wall as it would lay on the ground allows the length of the stone to "lock" the corner. This makes the corner structural. n Cap: The wall cap is an important statement of the mason's craft. Many of the wall samples provided do not have a cap detail. It is important that a cap detail be employed. It is possible that the wall can have a layer of earth over its top. However, concrete poured over the top of the wall should be avoided. A cast stone cap is allowed for more formal applications. ❑ Dimensions: The sense that the retaining wall is related to the earth, i.e. tectonic connection, is influenced by its massiveness and dimension. When the thickness of a retaining wall can be perceived, such as at the cap detail, the depth from front to back should be no less than 1 ft. Z Ordinance 760 V) J J Q Z Z Q w ry 101 Aspects of Wall Construction: As discussed above, the lack of modern construction technology and dependence on human labor gave birth to the construction techniques by which retaining and foundation walls in Catalonia/Europe were built. Instead of concrete, medieval wall builders used a lime mortar. The hardening of this material was dependent upon the reaction of the lime with atmospheric carbon dioxide, forming calcium carbonate. The drying process in combination with low strength allows a building constructed with lime mortar to shift and move slowly over time and thereby accommodates differential movements and distortions within the structure. This contributes to the organic and picturesque quality of building walls and edges. Present day use of higher strength, hydraulic mortars and concrete necessitates that the wall or building be built so as not to move or shift. Even though mortar was used, the structural integrity of the wall section was a result of coursing. Therefore, the appearance of a Catalonian/European wall is largely a function of executing structurally sound coursing with highly varied and uneven stone material. This portion of the retaining and foundation wall guideline addresses aspects of construction necessary to maintain the visual character resulting from the execution of coursing and use of lime mortar. More specifically these qualities of construction are: ❑ Veneer over structural substrate: When the stone of a retaining wall is actually a veneer over concrete block or poured in place concrete, filling a variable cavity space between structure and veneer should be used to give the wall a more handmade appearance. In addition, the masonry ledge must be wide enough to accommodate larger stones laid in the wall as these stones would normally lay on the ground. F Lift Wall: Where possible, lift wall construction should be used as it will naturally yield a more handcrafted look. The cavity space between courses should be large enough to allow large stones to lay in the wall in the same manner that they would lay on the ground.

History: ❑ Spanish: Spanish courtyards are designed like an outdoor room to create a restful, relaxing atmosphere. • Influences: The Roman and Moorish civilizations were significant influences in the development of the Spanish courtyard garden in the first through the twelve centuries. ❑ Atrium as a Precedent: The Roman atrium was the model for the Spanish patio which became the central feature of Spanish Courtyard Gardens. ❑ Medieval Use and variations: The medieval cloister gardens of the Middle Ages continued the courtyard tradition in cathedral and monasteries where monks often grew medicinal herbs and flowers. Location: ❑ Enclosure: A courtyard or patio is either fully or partially closed by building walls in combination with free standing walls. This differs from the courtyard and/or patio from a typical yard space which sits to the front, rear, or side of the primary structure and is almost completely enclosed by wall or fence. ❑ Affected Courtyards and/or Patios: Courtyards visible from the street are required to meet all the requirements of these guidelines. These include Entry Courtyards, Motor Courtyards and Patio Terraces. ❑ Entry Courtyards: Courtyards transition between public and private space and are typically located on the front side of the architecture. At least 2 sides of an entry courtyard are defined by building walls. ❑ Motor Courtyards: An expanded area for maneuvering a vehicle, located behind an entry portal and fully enclosed by garage wall and free standing wall. A 16'-0" wide gate is allowed at shared drives and motor courts for more than five garages. A maximum 12'-0" wide gate shall be used in locations with four or less garages. • Terrace Patios: Terrace patios are defined on one or more sides by building walls and the remainder is defined by low perimeter boundary walls. Patio terraces are often slightly elevated above the ground plane. Ordinance 760 Elements: ❑ Visual Effect: Courtyards are an important part of the streetscape and provide a great visual enhancement to both the street and the architecture hidden behind their walls. ❑ Enclosure: Stone walls or building facades create a sense of enclosure. At least 2 sides of the courtyard or patio terrace must be defined by building walls. ❑ Gates: Gates (conforming to the Gate Guideline) provide a visual connection into semi -private transition space. This is a community relationship more than a defensive relationship between building and street. ❑ Paving: ❑ Muse: Lateral expansion of street pavers ❑ Motor Court: Lateral expansion of street pavers or decorative paving with threshold ❑ Small Motor Court: Allowed to be saw cut concrete pattern ❑ Entry Courts Visible to Street: Enhanced landscaping, paving, art or combination thereof ❑ Artistic Features: Fountain, bird bath, sculpture, or simple basin of water may be included ❑ Decorative Planting: Containers and raised beds containing ornamental plants. Bed areas often limited requiring careful selection of plants for the limited planting area. ❑ Secondary Structures: Loggias, trellises, awnings and roofed arcades provide shade and a sense of enclosure. • Fire Place or Fire Pit: Exterior fireplaces emphasize the idea of an outdoor room. Il 3 Ordinance 760 cn J >Q n ry Q F_ ry 141 Courtyard Walls Material: ❑ Stone: Full width natural quarried stone, selected from the approved stone material for Entrada. All freestanding walls must be stone unless approved by Town for desired variety. Stone veneer backed with CMU or concrete is acceptable. Wall accents are acceptable. ❑ Stucco: Limited to 40% of street visible courtyard wall area ❑ Brick Accents ❑ Prohibitions: The use of thin -set stone veneer, the use of scored stucco meant to look like stone, exposed CMU. Articulation: ❑ Wall Section, Lift Wall: Two wythe natural quarried stone veneer laid in a coursed pattern with grout infill. Stones laid in a course pattern are Iain into the wall as they would otherwise lay on the ground. The frequent use of smaller leveling stones (chinking material) is permitted and encouraged. ❑ Wall Section, Veneer Wall: Single wythe natural quarried stone or brick veneer with concrete masonry unit (CMU) inner wall, natural quarried stone or stucco must cover CMU at all faces. The stone veneer must maintain the irregular surface pattern of a lift wall. ❑ Streetscape Contribution: Where employed, walls must make a strong edge with the streetscape. Walls along the front or rear property lines must lay within the Build -To - Zone as specified in the Fee Simple Residential Guideline. • Wall Surface: Planar, flat with visual expression of natural quarried or cut stone, cast stone, or brick surrounds at openings. Stones employed in the wall construction must be varied in width, height, and form. The frequent use of smaller leveling stones (chinking) is encouraged. ❑ Prohibitions: The use of thin -set stone veneer products and stone laid in a pattern that is not a load bearing coursed pattern (such as mosaic stone patterns) Dimensions: ❑ Thickness: 8 in. minimum (except for the use of leveling stones where needed to maintain level coursing). ❑ Height: 6 ft. minimum, measured from the base of the wall at the intersection of the ground plane; First 6 ft. of walls shall be solid exclusive of allowable opacity listed on the following page. ❑ Prohibitions: The use of a uniform size or cut of stone. Ordinance 760 Wall Cap: ❑ Material: Full width natural quarried stone. Random width natural quarried stone. Cut or dressed, full width natural quarried stone. Cut or dressed, random width natural quarried stone. Clay, half -round roof tile. A thin natural slate. Cast stone ❑ Articulation: The wall cap must be laid in a manner that engages the full width of the wall ❑ Prohibitions: The use of thin -set stone veneer products or concrete Stone Patterns and Coursing: ❑ Wall Face: Refer to "Retaining Wall Guideline" for approved coursing patterns. All stones laid in a course must be laid in the wall as they would lay on the ground. The frequent use of leveling stones (chinking) is encouraged. ❑ Wall Corner: Wall corner must be laid so that the vertical courses interlock (Toothing), thereby showing the full dimension of the stones used. See Retaining Wall Guideline for a more detailed explanation of corners. Corners are required to reflect the full depth of the stone and give the appearance of load bearing masonry. ❑ Prohibitions: Stacked mortar joints at any inside or outside corner or at the surround of an opening Opacity: ❑ Void to solid ratio: No more than 40% of the wall area may be an opening. This percentage may be modified for special conditions pursuant to design review. Wall Openings: • Definition: Openings are defined as Pedestrian, allowing for walking traffic, Automotive, allowing for garage access and Decorative, which do not allow the passage of man or car but provide visual relief on the wall run. ❑ Width of Opening: The maximum width of a Pedestrian opening is 6 ft. The maximum width of an automotive opening is 16 ft. if opening serves five or more garages. If opening serves four or less garages, the opening is limited to 12 ft. wide. Pedestrian and automotive openings may be gated with a wood or iron gate. However, when a garage is within the Build -To -Zone (see residential development guideline) the wall opening may be the width of the driveway serving the garage door opening. All other motor entries shall be to a motor court which serves the garage. Articulation: ❑ All wall openings shall have full natural quarried or cut stone, cast stone, or brick returns at openings. ❑ The incorporation of decorative natural stone shelves, niches and carvings into the wall facade is highly encouraged. ❑ All walls designed taller than 4 ft. in height are required to be approved and stamped by an engineer. All gravity walls must be designed or specified by a registered engineer. Ordinance 760 6 C r— r— Il 5 V) U rV Q 161 Arches Arches are defined as openings with headers. Arches may be a full round arch, segmented arch, elliptical arch, or a flat arch. An arch is composed of interlocking masonry units which structurally hold the arch shape in a compression assembly. Arches in Catalonia/Europe are generally not supported by a shaped metal angle unless the arch is of such a width that the public safety is served by inclusion of steel support. The Town may require steel support. Material: ❑ Material General: All components that make up an arch shaped opening, including supporting walls or abutments, decorative columns, ring stones and keystones, can be natural quarried stone, cast stone, brick, timber, or iron. ❑ Prohibitions: The use of EIFS, wood siding, Hardiboard siding, concrete masonry units, marble, granite, fiberglass and metal panels. Dimensions: E Thickness: 6 in. minimum as viewed from the underside of the arch. E Height: Height may vary with the use of natural stone.

Ordinance 760 FEE - SIMPLE RESIDENTIAL Ordinance 760 LU Single Family Residences U Residential expansion in the Catalonian/European Village was not a "Land Z Development" led undertaking. Instead, it was a familial pursuit with each succeeding Q generation adding and building as necessary to house the expanding family unit. In V) architectural terms this is called "additive construction" and is particularly characteristic LU of Spanish culture where large families were more commonplace and a vertical family organization the norm. Therefore, the intricate village look with continuous residential J structures defining a continuous frontage along narrow, winding streets is manifestation of a social structure and village community. Entrada, which aspires to deliver this same Q intricacy, is faced with the challenge of delivering it through a land development process U- where fee simple lots are created and sold. The Town has the authority to issue a LU permit for a design that meets standards and guidelines contained in Entrada's zoning __j and any mutual agreements with the Land Developer. Therefore, Residential 0 Development Guidelines are created herein for the purposes of directing the residential Z delivery system toward implementation of Entrada's "European Village" vision. More specifically, these guidelines are: Single Family Residences: As stated above, the typical single family home in a Catalonian/European Village was not like the single family home one sees in Southlake or even Westlake. It was more like a town house but the familial structure was stronger than the lot structure. As a result different houses may have shared common spaces (such as a courtyard) and thereby add a level of intricacy and complexity to the built fabric that containment within a fee simple lot will likely not give. However, viewing the individual home as part of a block and not simply as part of a lot provides a basis upon which to direct home design in a direction more compatible with the Catalonian/European archetype. Therefore, the guidelines of this section seek to describe the individual home in terms related to its contribution to the block. General Definition and Conditions of a Single Family Land Use: 1. A single family home in Entrada may be attached, zero lot line, detached or a combination thereof as required to meet the Lot Occupancy and Block group requirements specified below. 2. Single family homes can share yard, courtyard, entry court, motor court space, or a mews across a property line or property lines. Refer to the Town of Westlake Ordinance 703 for more information on Single Family Land Use. 72 Ordinance 760 Features of Lot Occupancy: In the Catalonian/European Village, the residential structure is established relative to the street, the necessities of drainage, or other more utilitarian considerations more than being established relative to legal lot lines. In fact, the land was likely owned by the nobility and grants for use were given (usually at a high price) forcing more verticality in the structure form. This system of "land rents" still exists today, even in US cities like Baltimore, Maryland. Here land once owned by Lord Calvert eventually went to people who did not reside on the property. Today, every mortgage pays a ground rent to another person. The result was density, verticality, and continuity along the street. This all important relation between structure and street over the relation between structure and lot makes it necessary to advance guidelines which promote street fabric and complexity. This is called "Lot Occupancy", meaning placement of the structure within the lot to establish a meaningful contribution to the street. There are three important street qualities to accomplish through this guideline. These are: F1 Street Complexity: The suburban street is characterized by lot -to -lot repetition of dimensional zones (front yard, side yard, etc.). The result is a prevailing sameness that has become so characteristic of "suburban sprawl". Further, house design serving speculative market needs tends to deliver an overall sameness to the distribution and architectural expression of house functions (such as the repetitive garage location). The guideline must promote a complexity that is typical of the Catalonian/European Village-scape. ❑ Street Continuity: A continuous street wall is an important element of the village street. F1 Street Interaction: The communal nature of the village celebrates the street as a communal space. This is accomplished by occasional residential functions which come out to and/or are visible from the street. Ordinance 760 n D n n D Z r3 w Street Frontage: Bringing the structure to the street (the referenced Build -to Line) will contribute to a more continuous street wall. Treatments of the Street Wall include: Q ~ 1. Setback: No minimum but 35% of structure frontage shall be in the Front Yard Z O "Build -to -Zone" as specified in the following section. H 2. Streetscape: 90% of the lot frontage must be residence (minimum 35%), or 6 ft. tall, w minimum natural stone wall, including pedestrian and drive gate if applicable. LU 3. Penetrations in the Street Wall: One gated pedestrian access is allowed on the C/ street lot frontage and if said access is located within a freestanding wall, the width of the pedestrian opening shall not exceed the height of the wall in which the opening is located. In addition one gated drive court entry is permitted provided that the width of the entrance does not exceed 16 ft. 4. Driveway Placement: Driveways must not abutt at a common property line unless the drive is a shared driveway and does not exceed a combined 14 feet in width. Shared driveways are encouraged, but where not possible, driveways should be separated by 18". Where shared driveways serving interior motor courts are employed, the frontage wall and entry gate may be eliminated for the width of the drive. 5. Automotive Access: One 20 ft. wide driveway for direct drive in garages with two carriage style doors, All other drives are limited to 12 feet wide from curb to entry gate. 74 Ordinance 760 I . Build -to -Zone: Typical front yards are comprised of passive land that usually stands between the street and house for purpose of protecting the home from street intrusions. The suburban front yard is a buffer not a connection. Therefore, it is desirable to bring the residential structure to the street. Each lot shall have a Front Yard Build -to -Zone, defined as the yard adjacent to the street the building is addressed. A minimum of 35% of any structure frontage built on a lot (but no less than 20 frontage feet) must be located within the Front Yard Build -to -Zone. The Build -to -Zone begins at a distance of 7.5' feet from the front property line. The distance between building frontage occupancy within the Front Yard Build -To Zone must not be greater than 45 feet.
