This passive solar home is designed for the rugged alpine climate of the Rocky Mountains. The design incorporates numerous sustainable features that allow the house to maintain even thermal comfort through out the year, such as adequate thermal mass, super insulation, solar orientation with shading and the addition of Hi-Tech Heat Mirror insulating glass.
This home is designed around an almost palatial colonnade that defines the central spine of the house. The large living space, kitchen and dinning area are open to the colonnade that create a dynamic flow of spaces that open out towards stunning mountain vistas.
Ceilings soar, light ignites the space, form organic and rich in detail.
