From the architect. Located in Woodside, California the Creekside Residence sits in its own natural world.  The site is in a meadow surrounded by western oaks, Douglas fir, and aromatic bays that border two creeks that never meet.  Bohlin Cywinski Jackson focused the design of the residence around the surrounding landscape creating cantilevered roofs and views to the environment beyond.  This project received a 2009 Honor Award for Design AIA Pennsylvania and a 2009 Wood Design Honor Award.  More photographs and sketches following the break.

The entry drive passes a pair of small outbuildings and leads to the meadow where the main house is arrayed along its southern and western edges. Designed for a couple and their two children, the house displays their collection of modern art and mid-century furniture.

A glass pavilion with dining and living areas sits in the meadow, its cantilevered roof floats past the window wall, drawing one’s eye to the landscape beyond.

Cedar boxes house kitchen and sleeping spaces and contrast with the pavilion’s transparent nature. Slipping into the pavilion is a library—a tall Douglas fir cabinet of book shelves with a great fireplace surrounded by glazing facing a forested glade. Bedroom spaces forming the north wing are connected by a hallway of shifting angles, reminiscent of an alley in an old village and the random nature of the original outbuildings.

The connection between the house and it's surrounding landscape is beautiful. Might be a bit large for the demands of a 4 person family but I don't think sustainable development was the goal here.

Frankly, I think the AIA should be ashamed of themselves for awarding this project any distinction. It is a beautiful looking building, with true craftsmanship, but 10,200 SF for a couple and their two children?!! Isn't todays buzzword sustainability? And what of Creeksides dream of "humane modernism"? Nevermind the archibabble, what is humane about gross consumption of resources?

bojangles reply · January 09, 2011 06:52 AM

ummm, I think the site is 2 acres, not the house. Certainly not the conditioned area. And a beautiful house it is.

cotd · January 05, 2011

did the author of the drawings have Parkinson's? why why why this obnoxious affect (the wiggle) in architects sketches?

cotd reply · January 06, 2011 02:51 AM

The architect suffered a stroke in the mid 90's which left him with some compromised motor skills, affecting his ability to draw straight lines freehand.
