Rare California Home Suspended Over a Creek

This California home, designed by Fougeron Architects, takes theindoor/outdoor connection to a new level. Suspended on two hills, the 2,500-square-foot home is directly over a creek with a waterfall on its rear side. The homeowners can enjoy the view from their terrace each morning.

A Two Story Home Right on the California Hills

Rather than anchoring the home on the creek, the architects followed distinct plans following California law, using the hillside to situate the house. The home doesn’t interfere with the creek but sits right over it.

The three-story exterior utilizes floor-to-ceiling glass so that views of the water are available from all areas of the house.

The house featured two floors and utilized metal posts suspended in the creek before its remodel. The architects brought the house to code and added a third story at a ninety-degree angle to the top.

A Super Modern Interior

While the house is designed around nature, the interior is minimal and modern. Sleek gray floors and black accents run through the home.

The interior features little decoration. Instead, the designers chose modern furniture with clean lines and stuck to a neutral color palette.

The kitchen has a mixture of white and black cabinets with a double oven and built-in stovetop.

The primary bedroom is also simple, with a modern bed frame and white bedding. It has a connecting bathroom and opens up to a private terrace.
