Placed on a beautiful wooded ground on Cedar Creek Reservoir, in Texas, USA, the CCR1 Residence ($NA) was intended to be an artful and low maintenance retreat that would blend in with the site. From how it looks in the video below, the project was successful.
The construction – designed by progressive architecture firm Wernerfield – is part of a 4,690 sq ft (435 sqm) plot that includes a main residence, guest pavilion, storage barn and various additional architectural features. Thanks to their slender floor plans, the buildings could fit snugly through the dense forest of pine trees that were planted by the owner on the property as a child. Durable and visually discreet materials like concrete, steel and teak, are used throughout the residence, while large sliding glass walls allow for a strong connection with the outdoors and landscape elements such as a sunken bocce court and fire pit courtyard.
