Southwestern
Contemporary
 
This small 1000 square foot residence explores southwestern vernacular, with a slight industrial bent. Materials include stone, stucco, corrugated metal, and wood blended together to create a warm contemporary feel. The barrel vaulted roof offers a strong geometric statement as well as a dynamic vaulted ceiling in the great room. The two story tower houses the residence's only bedroom, with a dramatic view of the northern mountains. Stone wraps the structures base, both inside and out, and erodes off into the landscape. Creating the illusion of a ruin, the garden wall extends into the landscape creating a connection to a future primary residence.
