Have you picked up the latest issue of Utah Style & Design? If so, you may be joining us in our delight at seeing another one of our Park City houses land the cover! Sparano + Mooney is thrilled to once again be a part of this remarkable design and lifestyle magazine. The article entitled, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, written by Natalie Taylor and photographed by Scot Zimmerman, showcases this home design nestled at the base of Park City, “where breathtaking nature, expressive materials and eclectic elements drive the compelling design.” Characteristic to Utah Style & Design, the pages are filled with full-page colorful photos, including those of this Thaynes Canyon home’s architecture and interiors, which showcases the owner’s personal artwork and style.
Owners Gwen and Patrick Reddish faced a difficult challenged when their previous 105-year old farmhouse situated on the land needed to be demolished. They wanted to keep their assortment of large trees when building a new home, and also wanted to incorporate elements of Scandinavian and European farmhouse style but in an updated, modern way. Sparano + Mooney Architecture was able to provide the architectural solution. By creating a long, narrow structure that “weaves in and out of the trees”, all trees remained untouched and a home emerged that “fit perfectly in the vernacular of the old farmstead site.” Elements from the owner’s original farmhouse were reused in order to maintain the feel of an old home - and preserve what was so loved!
Being filled with and built of stone, and distressed wood and materials, the architecture easily blends in with the surrounding nature, and a home in Park City wouldn’t be complete without incorporating the surrounding views. This house was designed to “seamlessly reach into the environment at every turn” as large windows and double-height ceilings throughout the home continually draw the eye to the outside.
This new home made from repurposed materials - and filled with rich colorful art and textiles - make this a fabulous hidden architectural gem in the Park City countryside. Thank you Utah Style & Design for featuring this eclectically styled and colorful home with your readers. We were honored to be a part of the process as the architects!
