Wernerfield uses concrete and weathered steel to create Texas home

This video shows Dallas-based studio Wernerfield’s recently completed lakefront dwelling that features concrete and glass volumes and a treehouse clad in rusted steel.

Called CCR1 Residence, the rectilinear house is located in a rural area about 60 miles southeast of Dallas. It is situated on a wooded site that sits along Cedar Creek Reservoir, which is popular recreational area and weekend getaway for city dwellers.

“The goal of the design was to provide an artful and low-maintenance retreat that would blend in with the site,” said Wernerfield, a multidisciplinary firm established in 2006 by architects Braxton D Warner and Paul D Field.

“A slender floor plan design allowed for the buildings to be woven carefully through the dense forest of pine trees that were planned by the owner on the property as a child.”

Encompassing 4,690 square feet (435 square metres), the project consists of a main home, guest pavilion and storage barn.

The architects also designed other features for the property, such as a two-storey, freestanding structure referred to as a treehouse. Its exterior walls are made of weathered steel, and a band of glass on the top level provides views of the scenic property.

The material palette for the entire project consists of concrete, steel, teak and glass.
