Dry Creek Outbuildings / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

These simply organized structures, a cottage and office, replace preexisting buildings that were inefficient, structurally compromised and in serious disrepair. Rebuilding within the footprints of the former structures allowed for the introduction of a clear relationship between the buildings and better response to the site. While architecturally similar, the two new buildings are programmatically diverse with the cottage housing the living elements of the program, and the office hosting the working component.

This project received a 2010 Design Award, Custom Residences Category AIA Housing Award, a 2010 Green GOOD DESIGN The European Center for Architecture and The Chicago Athenaeum, a 2009 Merit Award for Excellence in Architecture AIA San Francisco.

Creekside Residence / Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

© Nic Lehoux

Located in Woodside, 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 and a 2009 Wood Design Honor Award.  More photographs and sketches following the break.
