Light. Rooted. Organic. Creative. Open. Transparent.
Part of a family compound, the tri-level home is sited at the edge of a meadow, amid existing evergreens, spruce and gambel oak trees. With the goal of integrating the home onto the site as seamlessly as possible, the architectural team designed an iconic, gabled house form that gradually “peels up” from a traditional symmetrical front to an open back that transitions into the landscape and focuses on the views.
Indoor spaces address the family’s desire for vertical living, with ample public spaces on the ground level and private spaces on an upper level. Other specifications include a floor plan that is primarily open, yet provides distinct common, study and office spaces. Outdoor living spaces are designed to both maximize mountain and meadow views, and provide easy transitions between the interior and exterior. Exterior materials were influenced by the organic palette of the surroundings.
A separate greenhouse building was designed to house a year-round edible garden and enable a farm-to-table learning experience for the family.
