JUSTIN CLEMONS BY ANNE LEE PHILLIPS PROJECT: CCR1 Residence DESIGN CONCEPT: The 4,690-square-foot CCR1 Residence is located on a beautiful wooded site on Cedar Creek Reservoir. The project program included the design of a main residence, guest pavilion, storage barn and various ancillary architectural features. The goal was to provide an artful and low-maintenance retreat that would blend in with the site. A slender floor plan allowed for the buildings to be woven carefully through the dense forest of pine trees that were planted by the owner on the property as a child. An L-shape plan created a rear courtyard area that would provide refuge from the strong lake winds. A simple palette of concrete, steel, teak and glass was chosen for its enduring and visually discreet qualities. The entire project was limited to a single story, with the exception of the playful tree-house. Large expanses of sliding glass walls throughout allow for a strong connection to the outdoors and for landscape elements such as a sunken bocce court and fire-pit courtyard to become integral to the architecture. In this sense, the interior space can also serve as porches, true to the client's original desire. JUDGES' REMARKS: "Really inspiring.
