Magnificent Houses from Around The World: Crab Creek House By Robert Gurney

A new modern home rests on the foundation of a post-and-beam house from the 1960s, the Crab Creek House by Robert Gurney Architect.  At first glance, the variation of color contrasts and material accents make for an appealing visual personality, where stonework, slatted wood and white stucco from the exterior presence.

A collection of vertical and horizontal rectangular structures, the Crab Creek House has rising private sections and open community sections for balanced living.  Inside the home is bright and open with minimal furnishings and an emphasis on recessed, indirect lighting.  The home is skirted by untouched Maryland woods, with the natural gem of the Crab Creek at the end of its lot.  While the varied approach to exterior visual themes does feel a bit “office-y”, the home is a success in execution that we can’t help but admire.

Here is the companies Statement. 

The vast majority of houses constracted today are anamic replications of beloved houses built in a bygone era. Synthetic reproductions of time honored materials and thoughtless design process predominates. Wooded sites with rolling topography are leveled and rendered treeless. Molded styrene, plastics with embossed wood gain, and foam covered with resin reduce materials to flat, superficial images. Vinyl windows with articial muntin bars are employed with no regard for orientation. This greatly compromises our sensual gratification and ecological awareness.

The office of Robert M. Gurney, FAIA is dedicated to the design of modern, meticulously detailed, thoughfully ordered residential and commercial projects sensitive to site, program and budget. Materials are employed with honestly, integrity and ecological awareness. Regardless of project size or budget, our office is committed to producing buildings and spaces that strive for design excellence.
