PARK CITY MODERN RESIDENCE

This project is located in a mountain setting with views of Park City Mountain Resort, the Utah Winter Olympic Park, and the Glenwild Golf Course.  In order to embed the project in the site, the program elements step up with the topography from the public areas of the home to the more private bedroom and master bedroom volumes.

Exterior materials are both rough and refined: a highly textured board-formed concrete wall is capped with smooth cedar wood panels and glazed surfaces. These materials reference the highly textured scrub oak prevalent at the site under an expansive western sky. The vegetated rooftop incorporates native plants and will mirror the surrounding landscape each season: from the snow in winter to green in the spring to muted brown and yellow tones of late summer.

The house celebrates Utah’s brilliant light and raw beauty. The siting maximizes its passive solar orientation, bringing light deep into the house in the winter and shading the living spaces through well-considered overhangs in the summer.  Outdoor living spaces are integrated adjacent to the master suite and great room and a rooftop deck that overlooks a nearby golf course. The LEEDTM Gold home incorporates renewable energy with a ground-source heat pump and high performance, energy efficient building systems.
