The design parti consists of a simple configuration of two overlapping, perpendicular bars. The north-south service bar anchors the plan to the site and offers privacy from a common driveway with the upper floating level capturing views to the jutting flatiron mountains and the property's courtyard gardens. The architecture integrates and defines both a contemplative north courtyard and a public south-facing pool/spa landscape. Below the upper level, and open living room and office access both courtyards utilizing the entire site with the landscape walls defining the perimeters. The architecture is simple with a material palate consisting of board-formed concrete, cementitious stucco, wood, and glass. Meticulous attention was given to the process of form generation, programmatic distribution, and visualization to provide the client with a detailed vision of the residence during the design process.
