Residential Architecture: Crab Creek House by Robert Gurney Architect: “..Strict environmental regulations prohibited enlarging the pre-existing footprint or adding significant square footage to the house. The house is organized around a linear bar, clad in white stucco..From this central spine, additional spaces are articulated as independent volumes, projecting vertically and clad in either wood or metal siding. The spaces are also organized around a swimming pool and views toward Crab Creek. A continuous wall of glass and covered porch heightens the interaction between inside and outside..Materials used throughout the interior include white oak flooring and millwork, black slate, white marble, rusted steel and translucent glass. Additional materials used on the exterior include field stone, board-formed concrete, bluestone and ground-faced block..” Extensive glazing, abundant natural light and views, interesting materiality, fenestration and interior volumes..
