Rock Creek Modern

Single Family Residence – New Construction
Hot Springs, Arkansas
Budget <$500,000
Architect: Rogue Architecture LLC
Contractor: Owner
Completion: Summer 2015

One of the first commissions we took on as a new firm and our first permitted project as a licensed architect, this home holds a special place in our hearts and is a wonderful example of the signature style of our firm. Sitting on 22 acres just south of Lake Hamilton this 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 4,400 square foot home is built at the first highest rise of a rolling hill site just behind a tree line completely invisible from the street with dense timber surrounding. In the spring a small stream runs across the rear yard and the home is almost completely covered by the tree canopy above. The interior design is almost completely open to take advantage of the wooded views to the north with large openings to blur the line between interior and exterior. In choosing the exterior materials, the surroundings again played an important role. We chose a combination of natural wood siding, natural stone and corrugated metal panels so that the home seems to rise out of the landscape rather than simply placed upon it.
