With a rich material palette of glass, wood, and concrete, Cedar Creek Residence feels of a piece with its natural environment.
Completed in 2014, Cedar Creek Residence in Texas sits on a seven-acre lakeside property much beloved to the client, who wanted a modern home that connects inside and out. "The goal of the design was to provide an artful and low-maintenance retreat that would blend in with the site," said Wernerfield Architecture, who worked on the project along with Emily Summers Design Associates.
The master plan includes a main home, a guest pavilion, and a storage barn. Outdoor elements like a sunken courtyard and bocce ball court are thoughtfully woven through by landscape architecture studio Hocker Design Group. Per their website, "The primary residence is carefully slipped into a tall grove of mature pine and oak trees, to assist in establishing a dynamic of minimizing tree loss and maximizing views to the lake beyond."
"Midcentury detailing and naturalistic qualities and textures are the guiding principles of the interior spaces," say the designers at Emily Summers Design Associates. The combination of board-formed concrete and teak is repeated throughout, joined by finished concrete on the floor.
