The Mountain Shadows Residence is anchored on a steeply sloping site with sweeping views of Colorado Springs and Cheyenne Mountain. The family lost their previous home on this site in the Waldo Canyon Fire in the summer of 2012. The design of the new home was generated by combining the operational and functional requirements of a large modern family with the commanding and unique qualities of the site. With distinctly modern styling the home presents itself at different scales depending on how one approaches the house or views it from on and off the site. The simplified exterior material pallet of stucco and steel supports this balance of scale. On the interior, the floors are open and spatially connected both horizontally and vertically through clerestory openings and thresholds, which allows the play of light throughout the day to change the character of the rooms.
