Fox Ridge Residence

Designed for a Scandinavian couple this residence occupies a ridge line at 8,000 feet elevation.  The primary view sweeps over 20 miles of rolling foothills to the southeast.  The residential work of Marcel Breuer, a Bauhaus trained architect, informed the massing of the building.  Rubble stone walls are placed to act as a base for simple shed roof volumes.  The plan provides a generous, loft-like central great room that will allow for a variety of furniture arrangements.  A massive central fireplace acts as the primary spatial divider between kitchen, dining and great room.  Over hangs and shading elements were developed to mitigate the intense high altitude sun.
