Splinter Creek

A thoughtfully designed home conservation development in Mississippi.

Built on 650 acres of land in a lush lakeside area in Mississippi, Splinter Creek is a new house development that aims to establish a close relationship between living spaces and nature. NYC-based LANG Architecture designed the structures with a nod to local agricultural buildings. However, the houses look distinctly contemporary. Rising among pine forests and mature oak trees, the structures blend naturally into the landscape with their understated design and wooden cladding. This in-development project aims to create 26 homes, each with their private land.

The cabins will have access to 2-18 acres each, depending on the design. Large windows and glass doors link the interiors to nature while also bringing plenty of natural light inside the homes. Bright and airy, the interiors feature wooden flooring and white walls along with light, neutral color palettes. The standard Splinter Creek house design is a single-family home with three bedrooms, and a huge living room that has access to a large porch. Optional features like a floating kitchen deck, a carport, guests houses, and a treehouse are also provided. Regardless of design, each home owner will have access to the lake and surrounding forests and wetlands.

The development project focuses on environmental sensitivity. Each dwelling will sit within natural borders created by ravines, creeks, or trees instead of fences. At the same time, the houses will have complete privacy in a landscape where native flora, mature trees, wetlands, and rolling hills are home to over 350 species of wildlife.
