2012 RESIDENTIAL HONOR AWARD
Dry Creek Residence, Woodside, CA
Architect: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson
These simply organized structures—a cottage and an office—replace preexisting buildings that were inefficient, structurally compromised, and in serious disrepair. Rebuilding these small structures allowed for the introduction of a clear relationship between the buildings, better response to the spectacular site, and improved functionality. While architecturally similar, the two buildings are programmatically diverse, with the cottage housing the living elements of the program, and the office hosting the working component.
