Who We Are

Dibello Architects is a regional residential architectural practice providing custom home design and planning services in the Texas Hill Country. Our emphasis is on work that draws upon a wide range of architectural influences and carefully fits each project to its unique site.

Our custom home projects are located on sites that are in town and in the country on ranches, estate lots, rivers, and lakes. They include new and remodeled houses. Our work also includes barns and accessory buildings, master planning of ranches and vacation compounds, and selected commercial work.

We are located near downtown in historic New Braunfels, Texas in a Victorian house that has been adapted for re-use as an office building. Our team enjoys the opportunity to serve others as we produce examples of the kind of work we have a passion for. We value quality over quantity.

The firm is organized to provide home design services to clients who want to be closely involved in the process. Each project is directed by Principal Dale Dibello, with a Lead Home Designer & Residential Architect providing design, project management and on-going follow-through.

Our Home Design Philosophy

We pursue clarity and simplicity as the design approach for your home. This pursuit is guided by the conviction that beauty and harmony are often best found in patterns of traditional, vernacular and classical architecture.

We believe that the regional context matters – that new buildings and additions to old buildings should be harmonious with their neighbors.

We also see history as a rich resource and enjoy studying the work of the original builders and craftsmen to understand what parts of tradition to bring forward.

We believe that traditional building forms are often naturally sustainable, and we embrace straightforward strategies for reducing energy costs.

We believe that our designs should be driven by the client’s goals and dreams for their project, as well as the uniqueness of each program and site.

Our Distinctive Residential Architecture Expertise

Sensibly designed buildings that meet modern needs and feature clarity of circulation; natural light and strong connection to outdoor spaces; covered porches; appropriate scale; careful massing; clear hierarchy; natural materials; and respect for the building site.
