This Old Snowmass residence floats horizontally above a vast grassy meadow and is punctuated by an entry portal framing the view towards the Elk Mountain Range. The house serves as a barrier to the visitor while privatizing the vast meadow behind. The bar is anchored into the site with a concrete base and site walls and cantilevers on the West side.
A single deciduous tree pierces the roof plane and is open to the sky reflecting the seasons of the Rockies. The massing is divided into the main living and guest area and is connected by an open-air breezeway at the entry.
A white interior accommodates the owner’s art and allows floor to ceiling windows to reflect natural light within the space. Bi-Fold doors connect the main living area to the outside spaces, while large windows showcase the mountain views in every room. The exterior cedar siding was stained to complement the White Oak cabinetry and grey porcelain flooring.
