To bridge the gap between one generation’s preference for more traditional forms and another’s for a more contemporary orientation, this family compound is defined by a rigorous attention to detail. An exterior stone base grows into walls and taller vertical elements. The stone becomes elemental, and the wood siding and tautly detailed copper roof appear to slip into the stone masses. On the interior, a strong stone presence is offset by muted greys and whites. The copper will quickly age in the Rocky Mountain climate, darkening to a rich brown to give this legacy property a generations-old appearance before its time.
