Designed to accommodate weekend visits, longer stays and frequent guests, this modern mountain house blends simple forms and natural materials to create a contemporary connection to the forested landscape that it inhabits. An open, flowing floor plan encourages indoor-outdoor communal living – highlighted by the vaulted great room, with open kitchen, living and dining spaces, serving as the entertaining focus of the home. These entertaining spaces are complimented by more quiet, remote bedrooms and intimate family spaces. Outdoor living spaces at both levels of the home blur the lines of indoors and outdoors. A combination of warm wood and structural steel are expressed to accentuate the simple forms.
