Modern Creek Modern Home

Tomecek Studio Architecture as Architects

The Mallard Creek residence is influenced by site features that include a wetland with a stream, a lake surrounded by an agrarian alfalfa field and impressive views of Long’s Peak. A long stone wall provides a reference datum that links both public and private, indoor and outdoor spaces into a cohesive whole. The house is organized around a sunrise court to the east which gazes upon the lake and a sunset court to the west to take advantage of mountain views.

The private master suite contains a meditation space overlooking the lake for morning rituals while the evening court utilizes an outdoor grill for sundown activities and dining. Roof planes undulate to allow clerestory light into the spaces below while providing intimate scale for the exterior covered areas. The house fuses itself to the site while reinterpreting the traditional materials and agrarian forms of the front range plains
