This unique site is tucked away on a secluded cul-de-sac, below a canopy of trees, with a deep creek running along the rear boundary. The lot sits inside a major floodplain, and retaining walls provide high ground. Thus the site offers the challenges – and opportunities – of mature trees, steep terrain and potential flooding.

The house design tackles these challenges by taking cues from the site’s geometry and topography. The curved entry hall and terrace connect two main buildings that are positioned in harmony with the cul-de-sac and creek.

Sensitive building placement and structural bridges over roots help to preserve trees. Portions of the house cantilever over the creek, in order to reduce the footprint and minimize disruption to the site. Windows are located so that they exclude the afternoon sun but capture expansive views into nature. The house further connects with the outdoors through its exterior terraces and use of natural materials. welcharchitecture.com
