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.
