Rising from the pine forest, this small modern home overlooks a deep alpine valley in Central Colorado. The form originates in the golden ratio and celebrates its elemental materials. The exposed board-formed concrete base protects against deep snow accumulation in the winter. Charred cedar planks (shou sugi ban) wrap the home and provide durability and fire resistance. Raspberry Creek cascades through the property and a dense forest undergrowth provide a red and juicy harvest throughout the summer.
