RKD Architects have shared with us a house they’ve designed in Park City, Utah, that’s made up of three pods, each with a curved, outward-leaning window wall.

The home, surrounded by the Wasatch Mountain Range, includes a variety of natural materials such as cut limestone walls and wood beams.

The main social areas of the house are open plan, with the kitchen, dining area, and living room all focused on the views. In the living room, concrete floors complement the concrete hearth of the fireplace, while a hanging chair and bench along the windows creates additional seating.

In another room, a fireplace with a black surround draws the eye up to the high ceilings and exposed wood beams. Sliding glass doors open the interior to the outdoors.
