DescriptionThe design encompasses the rugged mountains and contains distinctly modern architectural details. Inspired by the nearby Mormon Row residences, the design straddles the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries. The residence is broken into four volumes connected by glass bridges. The central pavilion holds the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The extravagant exterior clothed in stained cedar and stone matches the interior’s wide-plank French oak floors, resulting in contemporary beauty.
Founded in 1996, the firm crafts areas with limited materials that emphasize the qualities of space.
