Architecture: Andersson-Wise


Portfolio: Andersson-Wise / Part One: Stone Creek Camp

I came across the work of this amazing studio a short while ago, and couldn't wait to share some of their projects. Thus, a brand new series has begun—starting with a well-planned, warm and woodsy lakeside home called Stone Creek Camp. Set into the sloping landscape in a very non-intrusive manner, this beautiful, remote, rustic and modern home welcomes with an intriguing entryway of stone and stacked wood pieces...






The path you see leads to the three main areas—the main lodge, guest house and the master house. The materials utilized create quite a beautiful and warm feeling—stone walls and stainless steel, combined with concrete and wood, and glass. While inside, one may choose to bring the outdoors in by simply sliding open walls. (third from bottom) How refreshing it would be to wake up to large windows surrounded by majestic trees...







Studio Profile: Andersson-Wise is an award-winning architecture and design studio based in Austin, Texas. Founded by Arthur Andersson and F. Christian Wise in 2001, their "collaborative approach to residential, institutional, and hospitality architecture results in precise solutions carefully attuned to their purpose." I hope you that you enjoyed the first of this new series. There will be more to follow shortly.

  2. Wow, that residence is certainly amazing. It has a woody dreamy kinda feeling for me. I especially fall for that bedroom with large window glasses overlooking the woods. Marvelous indeed!

  4. Sarah this is an amazing showcase of craftsmanship that goes beyond the norm. Not only is the house beautifully integrated into its setting, but the material choice, light/solid balance and finishing touches are impeccable.
    I stared at the fantastic stone work (and wood fire work) a long time - each stone (log) fit together with the next like an organic jigsaw puzzle - it must have taken ages to achieve such stunning result.

    Wow wow wow, all the way from Sweden!

  11. It's beautifu,l but what about maintenance? the first thing I thought was SPIDERZ! and other unwanted creatures hiding in all those crevices.

  13. Anonymous (01): Oh goodness, I had not even considered the spiders or other such wildlife—I suspect that have done a few little features perhaps to deter this :)

    Anonymous (02): Ahh yes, I suspect that you are correct. If you happen to be by the area, I would love to know if you catch a glimpse of the house, and your impressions...

  14. Some of the chosen materials will be dated in a matter of a couple of years. Especially the stone selections. Also looks like Calamagrostis ”Karl Forrester” serving as the "sod" on the roof which is a puzzling choice. Lots of maintenance over time and doesn't really add any value other than aesthetics.

  15. Is the wall of firewood used for firewood? Convenient but could be messy. Very beautiful though.

  16. Yeeeaaah, I wouldn't want that spiderwall in my house. Even the stone one looks a little spidery. But that wood one? There WILL be an web in every one of those cracks within 2 years.

  17. What an Amazing ranch. Does anyone know who the builder is? They deserve an amazing amount of credit for making the architects vision a reality!

  18. Wonderful craftsmanship, wonder who the builder was?
    Tha architect has designed a beautiful house but the builder was the one who executed the idea, brought the plan to life and turned the house into a home. How many gifted craftsmen are there that could pull this off.
    My hat's off to both the architect and the builder

  19. Such a gorgeous and cozy home! I like the kitcken in particular, but also love the idea that you are on the water but also in the middle of the forest!

  20. This is a really awesome house! I do real estate in the Denver metro area in Colorado USA, and sometimes I sell houses in the Rocky Mountain area, but I've never seen something quite as gorgeous as this. Amazing pictures, thanks so much for sharing!

  22. Another proof that natural is best. Wood and stone - such an amazing interior. I wish I could run away from city life and live in a place like this
