Copper Mountain Residence
Status: Under construction
Builder: Pinnacle Mountain Homes
Location: Copper Mountain, Colorado
Working within strict local design covenants, we were interested in defining a nuanced balance between modern and traditional while challenging the locally accepted conventions of "mountain modern." Partnering closely with our structural engineer, we developed a hybrid language of a true timber frame and traditional construction, with the living, dining and kitchen areas featuring exposed solid timber trusses.
Referencing the regional historical vernacular lexicon, the material palette in the project is restrained to three elements that will patina gracefully: a stone lower level, vertical spruce siding and bonderized standing seam roofing.
