Three Peaks Residence
Nestled in a wooded Rocky Mountain hillside above the Raven Hills Golf Course near Vail, the Three Peaks Residence is a refreshing, eco-luxury, Colorado mountain homes based on “nature-inspired” contemporary design principles. Conceived as a ‘working’ second home for a telecommuting couple from Houston, the spaces combine the Owner’s contemporary Asian art and love of the beautiful landscape with functional, energy-efficient spaces that were required to flow fluidly from the wilds of the mountain forest to the comfort of the indoors.
The Escarpment Urban Retreat Residence
On an escarpment overlooking the Bow River valley and downtown Calgary, is an Urban Retreat designed to please its engaging Owners. The small lot had to fit a busy family of four who loves entertaining their large extended family, and have the ability to enjoy outdoor gatherings.
This transformation focused on connecting all living spaces within the floor plan, creating a continuous flow from the public spaces to the private ones. The kitchen workspace is easily accessed from circulation paths and adjacent rooms. It remained where it existed, but opened itself to the wall of windows facing northwest. Facing the dining and living spaces, the kitchen island becomes the central core to main level living.
