The Creekside Retreat by Richardson Architectsis a successful redesign project of a house initially built in 1954: “This home, nestled in a redwood grove, was recently purchased by a family of four. Situated on a gently upsloping lot bordered by a creek, its most distinctive site feature is an old wooden bridge over the creek and the rock walls which carve paths through the site”, explained the architects. Currently a cozy family refuge in California, United States, the residence is filled with natural light and color, adding up to a  dynamic atmosphere.

A charming mix of old and new can be admired throughout the length of the house: “The client was interested in maintaining the residence’s historic character while updating it for today’s living standards and code requirements. This required adding more natural light with larger windows and skylights as well as adding a partial second story for a master suite. Maintaining the wood exterior and mullion patterns of the existing windows settles the addition into the landscape as an example of a very light effect to a sensitive site.” Enjoy the virtual tour below and tell us what you think!

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
