The Creek House

The boys of Faulkner Architects designed this house near Lake Tahoe in California. The client, interested in the natural environment that characterizes the site, asked the architects to comply with the territory, preserving its properties and characteristics. The result is definitely great.

Respect for the pristine natural environment has been a priority since the beginning, so the company has designed residences on or around all the large boulders scattered around the site.

"The house was built around and in respect of every rock," said Faulkner Architects. "The house is cantilevered on different boulders, there’s the feeling that it does not even touch the site," they added.

The Creek House is clad in concrete, wood and dark panels, a choice of sober colors that allows it to blend in with the environment. The main entrance is to the north, where a massive wall runs from north-east to south-west. This provides privacy for the customer but also helps to shield the interior from the summer sunlight, which could be, on highly sunny days, too intense.

The open-plan kitchen, living room and dining room occupy the center of the house and overlook the ravine below. A corridor follows the main concrete wall, leading to the private spaces at the two ends of the longitudinal house. In addition to the two complete bedrooms, a partial lower level contains a space for meditation that can be used as a sleeping area if needed.
