Pinyon 76

Under Construction

A low-profile yet distinct street-facing presence naturally prioritizing the expansion of the home to the South for views, privacy, and following the sloping site

A ground up custom single family residence designed to accommodate a growing family with a priority for entertainment and hospitality in mind. The tight pie-wedge shaped property sloping to the South initiates a design solution of contraction at the front and expansion at the rear while the introduction of an angular floor plan layout is essential to maximize the buildable envelope and accommodate the client program. The procession into this modest sized home begins with a contemporary take on a quaint suburban front porch and expands into a luxurious and spacious open-plan layout. The primary living space prioritizes a flood of natural light, mountain views, and an extensive covered second floor deck for seamless indoor/outdoor living year around.
