Box House

AIA Colorado North Chapter Honor Award recipient, featured as HGTV Dream House.

Steep site, wildfire prone area, prominent location, compelling views – east, southeast, and south. A ribbon of concrete carves through the hillside to create the space for the programmed boxes. The garage and the main living level push into the earth while the studio and the master suite float above it. A slot of space organizes the procession from the car park at the north to the courtyard at the south. The courtyards form introverted space that perceptually enlarges the efficient interior.
