Modern Rugged Home Rises From The Ashes
Set on stilts on a sloping hill on four-and-a-half acres of land, the home, called Sunshine Canyon House, was built in the style of Colorado’s vernacular architecture. It comprises two volumes—a simple gabled roof structure and a rectangular block sitting below it—with private quarters on the lower level and the kitchen, dining, and living areas making up the long upper structure. This communal space looks out onto gorgeous vistas thanks to an entirely glazed wall.
A staircase connects the two floors, while the roof of the first functions as an expansive terrace accessed by sliding glass doors. Ample windows are placed throughout the rustic home, many of which can be covered by rolling barn-style doors. The exterior is clad in corrugated weathering steel, and inside the simple interior, exposed-beam ceiling and wooden floors and built-ins nod to the state’s connection to the outdoors.
