Located in Sanger, California, The Creek House is a residence residence built by Arthur Dyson who used the organic philosophy architecture to guide the design and construction of the house.
Walking in California will introduce you to fanciful architecture. Perhaps the most visually mythical and storybook-like organic architecture is a philosophy of architecture that harmonizes human habitation with the natural world.
Widely regarded as a strong supporter of organic architecture, award-winning architect Arthur Dyson designed and built The Creek House, one of his organic residential must-sees. Located on Collins Creek,
Set on six acres of land, The Creek House is nestled in wooded groves near the base of the Sierras and Sequoia National Park, an ideal location for an organic architectural residence. The Creek House was designed to celebrate nature and its visual connection to the natural world is abundantly apparent.
Looking at the house from the front, its rustic, wavy facade formed of what appears to be wood shingles follows the irregular, sinuous curve found in the tree rings. Even the tallest wooden panel which retains a yellowish tint embodies the outermost perimeter of a felled tree trunk.
From the side of the house, its facades resemble the shape of a tree trunk cut in half, with wood shingles continuing from the front facade to the roof of the house. The rear deck maintains the home’s all-wood profile, dissolving an outdoor recreation area in the surrounding brush, honeysuckle, poplars, and sycamore trees.
While The Creek House’s exterior finds natural warmth with an all-wood frame, the interior is bursting with natural sunlight streaming in through floor-to-ceiling picture windows. Blending natural wood art deco accents with ’90s interior design elements, The Creek House is the kind of coziness you have to experience for yourself.
