Fougeron Architecture has remodelled the Suspension House in California, United States.

"A human-made object in nature may exist in harmony or disparity," said Fougeron Architecture. "Our goal was to deepen this home's connection to the environment, creating a place where our clients can live immersed within an exceptional landscape."

Taking care to protect and restore the land, the architects suspended the renovated house between two California hills, where it overlooks a rushing waterfall and spans the creek below.

The remodel is said to have retained 50 percent of the existing wood structure.

A steel frame beneath the original floors anchors the home to the rocky hillsides – thus allowing the removal of supporting columns from the creek bed.

This project has been longlisted in the house renovation category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
