sugar bowl residence

In an oth er wise hor i zon tally ori ented house, a two story glazed wall at the main stair pro vides a sin gu lar ver ti­cal per spec tive on the stands of sur round ing pines and pro vides a moment of tran si tion from the heav ier base ele ment to the light-​​filled airy spaces above. On the upper level, a vari ety of liv ing spaces and the mas ter bed­room suite,each enjoy ing moun tain views, are gath ered between the lin ear roof form and the sim ple block below. The inte rior palette of wal nut, fir,concrete, and steel strikes a bal ance between clean, mod ern spa tial expres sion with the warm, rus tic feel of a moun tain home.
