Arcadea Architecture Projects
The house is inspired by Italian hill towns, which the owners love. It appears to grow out of the granite boulders that dot the landscape. The rugged stonework, courtyards anchored with towers, and clay tiled hipped roofs done here in rusted corrugated metal echo some of the common elements found in Italy. Massive stone columns and beams boldly frame dramatic vistas, as if a modern home was built in and around an old stone ruin in the hills. These stone walls are inside as well as outside. A veranda on the view side connects the great room and into the covered terrace on the end. By locating these outdoor spaces on the ends, they don’t interfere with the dramatic views. They provide full shade, partial shade and full sun, as well as fireplaces to maximize outdoor comfort options.
This homestead for a mountain top mini-farm is a modern barn surrounded by stone out-buildings. The structure is exposed natural steel with a (secret) finish that will not rust. On the exterior, weathered materials contrast with steel details, such as eyebrows provide shade from the summer sun. The natural reclaimed wood exterior has been coated with an invisible fireproofing. On the interior, the stone creates a ruggedly modern fireplace and soft gray concrete floors contrast nicely with the dark wood and steel tones. A ceiling of beetle-kill pine between exposed beams and a steel stair with select hickory floors complete the effect. The fireplace has a built-in seat next to the hearth and bookshelves for reading. Interior and exterior spaces have been positioned to take maximum advantage of sunlight and views.
This house was redesigned and rebuilt after the Fourmile Fire of 2010. It’s form and timber structure are reminiscent of a barn with rusted steel and cement board siding that echoes a log base. This is one of a series of our designs inspired by iconic and indigenous Colorado mining and agricultural forms. Its exterior materials are very durable and fireproof, including the deck, which evidence shows is the most vulnerable part of a mountain house from wildfire. The new orientation of the house is situated for maximum solar exposure for the 3.4 kW photo-voltaic array as well as to capture sweeping views out over Sunshine Canyon. By digging the garage into the steep hillside, the drive turnaround provides for a comfortable entry approach and easy vehicle turnaround.
