Local Architect Keeps it Green in Oak Cliff

By Rita Cook     

Dallas resident and architect Alicia Quintans knows about living green.  In fact she says “I grew up on a farm so a sustainable lifestyle is very familiar. My grandparents were farmers and home-grown produce was available all year round. My family lived in a farmhouse with no central a/c and butane heaters. The house was designed to allow for air flow and we often slept on the screened porch in the summer.”
