Dezeen Debate newsletter features an "ostentatious" house spanning a California creek

The latest edition of our weekly Dezeen Debate newsletter features a creek-spanning holiday home in California by Fougeron Architecture. Subscribe to Dezeen Debate now.

Zinc cladding and large stretches of glass feature in The Suspension House, a two-storey 1970s building that San Francisco-based Fougeron Architecture remodelled and enlarged for a couple and their child.

While conceiving the revamp, the studio set out to "reconnect" the dwelling to the landscape and reduce its impact on the creek it bridges. But commenters aren't sold on its "corporate" design.

"A lovely creek fatally injured by an awkward, ostentatious house," wrote one.
