In a nod to existing neighbors, the facade of the Burch Creek Home embraces a mid-century flare, with a concealed garage door and sleek modern features. You enter the courtyard through a custom sculptural gateway. Nature focused with a babbling brook and circulation flowing through, this space offers a moment of pause before entering the home.

Within the home, floor-to-ceiling windows blur the separation between indoor and outdoor space. Exterior materials, including handmade bricks and traditional Japanese Shou Sugi Ban siding, show a dedication to craft and quality. The exposed cross-laminated timber (CLT) roof stretches throughout the main floor. This structural and natural material provides a sense of tranquility and protection.

With the same enthusiasm, there is an effort to embrace environmental sustainable practices. Radiant heated and cooled floors regulate the interior climate (whole house fan).

Through nature-centric design, quality craftsmanship and sustainable practices, the Burch Creek Home stands as reflection of contemporary residential ideals and time resilient design.

From the Judges
“It’s bold. When you go really contemporary like this, less is more. It’s so simple and elegant. The garage is well disguised—it basically disappears within the paneling—and the wood over the entry walkway and unexpected water element are great exterior features as well. Inside, the staircase is awesome, as are details such as the warm touches in the primary bathroom and the dark weathered brick, with almost gold flecks, throughout the home.
