Nestled into a hillside, this low profile residence creates a contrast of spatial experiences. The house consists of two intersecting “bars”.

The south and east side of the bars capture downhill views to the valley floor. On the northern uphill side, the house’s two wings form an intimate courtyard with a grove of aspen trees.

At the entry, the geometry is skewed by an alignment with a prominent mountain peak viewline to the east.
