New Traditional Architecture for the Texas Hill Country

As a “New Traditionalist” practicing in the Texas Hill Country, Architect Dale Dibello believes that context is key in the design of new buildings. He follows a regional approach influenced by the diverse cultures that have shaped Central Texas and the Austin/San Antonio corridor. The rugged beauty and complexity of the land as well as the history of the place all inspire the designs.

Kind words from our clients

  • Dale Dibello was able to understand and conceptualize our desires after only a few minutes discussion. We are thankful every day for his ability to create, better than we could have ever imagined, plans for a home that fulfilled our unique vision. Employing Dale’s talent was the wisest decision in the home building process we could have made.

    Birch and Velma Smith

  • Dale Dibello designed a home for our family that offers both a functional, flowing floor plan as well as architectural features that exude style and character. At the beginning of the creative process, we gave Dale a very specific and ambitious list of “wants” and “wishes” for the home despite having a challenging build site. He blew us away when he delivered a design that fulfilled our vision and goals! The entire creative process was so successful and enjoyable because of the care Dale gave in getting to know our family’s lifestyle, preferences and taste. We love living in our home.

    James and Sarah Blake

  • Dale created, from scratch, a design plan that far exceeded our expectations. Now living in the home for over 2 years, we are finally, fully appreciating numerous architectural elements of the home that he masterfully designed. We enjoy the flow of the home and find it is not only functional & efficient, but also true to our architectural style. Dibello Architects was a wise investment and we are grateful for our experiences with their team.

    Roy and Amy Lohse

  • From the moment he met us on our piece of property he understood what we were trying to accomplish and the challenges we faced.  His initial development drawings were spot-on with exactly what we had discussed.  He was an enthusiastic member of the team all the way through completion.  My wife and I have and will continue to refer Dale to anyone looking for that perfect partnership.

    Randy and Kelly O’Donnell

  • We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dale to design our farmhouse. He was able to capture all of the items on our “wish list”, while designing a house that is beautiful, bright, and functional.

Dale Dibello, AIA,Principal & Founder

Besides designing houses that are rooted in the Classical tradition of architecture, I also like to paint the landscape en plein air (on-location) and in my home studio. My hope is that both the paintings and the architecture will give you a place to step into – a place to rest and contemplate for a while. As architect and painter, my primary purpose is to honor and glorify God, by creating works of beauty that highlight creation.
