FROM THE EDITOR

“I had already gathered a collection of old [license] plates from Craigslist figuring they would be cool for some sort of project. I’m thinking I might steal this idea!”

CHATTER The conversation has been getting lively over at the Mountain Living Facebook page. Here's what fans have been loving lately

You told us what you like best about this rustic dining room from July’s “Best of Rustic Done Right” feature:

“The big chunky shelves with the antique wine bottles and other fun accessories on them—what a statement!” Lynne Bier

There’s nothing I like better than a design that surprises me. A wall covered with hair-on-hide tile, a chandelier made from bicycle chains, a water-trough-turned-bathtub. That’s why I’m especially excited about the homes in this issue. On page 130, you’ll find a Deer Valley, Utah, house that’s worlds away from a typical mountain estate. Created by a French-born, Swiss-trained and Park City-based residential designer and an interior designer from Greenwich, Connecticut, it’s filled with some unexpected juxtapositions: zebra hides and antler chandeliers, Navajo woven fabrics and French copper pots, tweed sofas and goatskin benches. Just down the road in the mountains of Utah, architect Costantino Grandjacquet created a completely different—and equally fresh—take on a mountain lodge (see page 146) by giving rugged materials like stone walls and rough-hewn ceiling beams a contemporary spin, pairing them with sleek concrete floors and stripping away all the “unnecessary details” like wooden baseboards and trim. My favorite design twist in this issue is on page 144. Everyone thought architect Tom Ward was crazy when he decided to forego a log barn’s traditional mortar chinking (used to fill the gaps between the logs that form the exterior walls) and use thin strips of glass instead. Remarkably, he made it work, and the result is pure magic. And finally, be sure to bookmark our annual list of Top Mountain Architects & Interior Designers, a handy guide to the West’s most talented design pros (page 44). Browse their portfolios and you’ll find enough inspiration for 100 mountain homes—and, I’m betting, many more great design surprises too.

“I like the weathered beams and the brick.” Jennifer Kramer

ENTERTAINING

Fall

Harvest Party The creative minds behind Aspen’s most stylish events celebrate the season with a fall fête filled with easy and inspiring entertaining ideas

STORY BY CHRISTINE DEORIO

24

ML | September /October 2012

PHOTOGRAPHY BY KATE HOLSTEIN PHOTOGRAPHY


It all began with an inspiration board and a handful of Aspen’s best entertaining experts. After a hectic summer events season, the stationers, florists, pastry chefs and event planners were ready to kick back with a celebration of their own. And so they started sharing some of their favorite ideas and inspirations for a fall harvest party on a virtual inspiration board on the website pinterest.com. A few weeks (and a few hundred “pins”) later, the group brought their best ideas—beautiful invitations, gorgeous florals, sweet bites and rustic-chic décor—to the Holden Marolt Ranching and Mining Museum, where they spent a sunny afternoon celebrating the bounty and beauty of autumn in the high country.

Setting the scene starts with setting the table. To create a down-on-thefarm look, event planners from Bluebird Productions (bluebirdaspen.com) topped a rustic wooden buffet table with a simple woven runner (facing page) and an eclectic mix of serveware, like a tin cake stand (top) and mason jars (left), picked up at local thrift and antique stores.

Natural accents add oomph to autumnal floral arrangements. Beth Gill, owner of The Aspen Branch, tucked lilies, roses, mums and berries into vases wrapped with leaves or filled with acorns and apples. Colorful gourds fill in the display. For extra ambiance, tiny gourds were turned into candle holders. To get the look, cut a shallow hole into the top and pop a tealight inside. aspenbranch.com >>

ENTERTAINING

Caramel-apple-making kits (right) encourage guests to continue the celebration at home. The burlap sacks are filled with tart apples, caramels, popsicle sticks and cellophane bags filled with chopped nuts and sprinkles for decoration. A custom-printed tag provides the easy instructions.

“Rustic, yet simple and elegant.”

Charming apple cups are easy to make and fun to drink from: Cut off the very top of each apple, then use a spoon to dig out the core and flesh, leaving at least a quarter-inch rim. Brush the inside of each apple with lemon juice to prevent browning. Cinnamon sticks make perfect straws—and add spice to every sip.

26

ML | September /October 2012

These were the watchwords Amy Forsey used when designing the custom printed invitations for this fall fête. The owner of Express Yourself, a stationery boutique in Basalt, Colorado, paired thick off-white paper with chocolate-brown lettering that has an antique, hand-washed look. Each invitation is wrapped with twine and accented with a sprig of wheat (available seasonally at grocery stores and florists). Unexpected printed pieces, like coordinating dessert cards (stuck into little log rounds, shown on facing page), framed seasonal quotes and goody bag tags “really add a personal touch to the party,” Forsey says. expressyourselfbasalt.com


Pumpkin Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Icing

SWEET BITES The pastry pros at the Roaring Fork Club (roaringforkclub.com) in Basalt whipped up an enticing array of treats that look as sweet as they taste. Find all the recipes at mountainliving.com.

Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and 1/4 cup walnuts. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin purée, oil and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Spoon into a greased 8-inch pan and bake 30 to 40 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto baking rack. Cool completely. To prepare icing, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in sugar, maple syrup and vanilla until well blended. Cut cake into 2-inch cubes and layer with icing in mason jars. Garnish with remaining walnuts or pumpkin candies. ○

TRAVEL

[ Essential Scottsdale ]

POOLSIDE PERKS If Scottsdale hotels are defined by their pools, then the Four Seasons is one peaceful oasis. Here, even the hottest day feels downright refreshing thanks to cooling misters, chilled mint-scented towels, Evian body spritzes and the shade of complimentary cabanas. The hourly delivery of frosty treats, from smoothies to chilled fruit kebabs, adds to the cool factor.

stay

Quiet and understated—unlike so many of Scottsdale’s mega resorts—the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is easy to miss. And that’s exactly why you’ll love it. Removed from the hustle and bustle of town, it’s situated in the high Sonoran desert in the foothills of Pinnacle Peak, where the temperatures are a bit cooler and the pace is a bit slower. Meandering pathways are lined with Territorial-style casitas and a wildly beautiful array of flowering cactus, ocotillos, giant agaves and palo verde trees. Just beyond, in stark contrast, rocky mountains and cliffs rise up in the landscape. The play of colors and textures continues inside the resort’s 210 guest rooms and suites, all decked out with gas fireplaces, flatscreen televisions, deep soaking tubs and terraces with views of desert blooms, mountains and distant city lights. Suites take luxury to the next level with private patios complete with plunge pools, outdoor showers, fireplaces and telescopes for stargazing. At the spa, treatments inspired by Native American traditions and indigenous ingredients—think Sonoran honey and Sedona red clay—come with special little touches, like the chocolate-covered strawberry that awaits when you melt off the massage table. Local ingredients are also on the menu at the resort’s signature restaurant, Talavera, where Oaxaca-born chef Mel Mecinas incorporates local ranch-raised meats, produce and even olive oils into his modern-steakhouse menu (don’t miss the “Foie Gras PB&J”). The best tables line the patio’s glass railing, where there’s nothing between you and views of Pinnacle Peak and the valley below.

YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS... Creating a home is like painting a masterpiece. After taking time to understand my client’s vision, I develop the concept in my mind. Then I layer the finishes, furnishings and colors onto the palette as the project progresses, at times changing direction, and adding and subtracting as I go. I believe the process needs to be fluid and creative while maintaining the necessary attention to schedule and detail. It should be an organic process that results in inviting spaces. YOUR STYLE IS INFLUENCED BY... Travel and the ruggedness of the West. I love to find treasures when I travel. I will mix unusual furniture pieces and sculptural architectural accents from around the world into a home filled with antiques and reclaimed-wood beams and flooring.

Denver. I recently visited for the annual ASID membership mixer and discovered a fantastic world of shapes and colors. It is an interior designer’s dream. The vignette-style displays enticed me with their mixes of furniture, art and decorative accessories. It’s definitely worth a special visit when you’re in Denver. If you have the privilege of meeting the director and curator, Hugh Grant, you will be charmed by his stories about the history of the museum, Vance Kirkland and the wonderfully unique collections.


MOUNTAIN

ARCHITECTS & DESIGNERS OF THE WEST

MARKEL DESIGN GROUP, INC. CLIENTS COME TO YOU FOR… A sophisticated sense of scale and proportion, as well as my many

years of experience coordinating all aspects of design, from conceptual drawings to construction and selection of furnishings and accessories. My vast knowledge and approachable personality keep clients coming back and referring their friends.

YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS… The packaging and presentation of a space is what evolves into

a sense of home. I like to view a project in its entirety while simultaneously paying attention to all the small details that complete a space. It’s also critical to establish goals at the beginning of a project and see to it that they are carried out.

YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IS MOST INFLUENCED BY… Southern style and tranquil simplicity. I love combining light colors, warm woods, metals and old architectural accents and, of course, large arrangements of fresh hydrangeas. When I’m working in the mountains, I give some of these elements a twist so they blend with the mountain grandeur everyone comes here for. THE MOST INSPIRING THING YOU’VE SEEN LATELY IS… Colorado residents coming

together to support each other during this difficult year. It inspires us to be better people and to help out our neighbors.

EVERY HOME MUST HAVE... Good lighting! Architecturally appointed windows, in addition to decorative interior lighting, is the key to balancing a space. We often forget that we inhabit our homes the most during the evening hours.

SHARE WITH US ONE OF YOUR GO-TO DESIGN RESOURCES… Designer markets. These shows are where vendors introduce their new lines and I can touch and feel their products. My goal is to increase my resources by at least one vendor each time I go. MAKE A DECORATING PREDICTION… For me, design, especially in the mountains, always contains classic elements and timeless palettes. A MOUNTAIN LIVING SPECIAL SECTION

“ The New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe.

FAVORITE BUILDING IN THE WEST

“Richard Neutra’s Kaufmann residence, which effortlessly connects indoor and outdoor spaces while providing protection from the extreme desert conditions in Palm Springs. Built in 1946, it is a perfect example of how the International style can transcend time.”

FAVORITE BUILDING IN THE WEST

“The Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park, which I have fond early memories of. It is amazingly monumental— even more so when you are eight years old—as it rises with four-story balconies built of lodgepole pine. It’s one of the largest log structures in the world.” Debra Browne, Harrison Browne Interior Design

FAVORITE BUILDING IN THE WEST

“The Brown Palace in Denver is absolutely amazing. The exterior beckons you, and once you’re inside, you see the detail and beauty of every aspect of the finishes, from the amazing lighting to the onyx walls.

FAVORITE BUILDING IN THE WEST

“The Lost Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole is right at the top of my list of absolute favorite experiences. The historic ranch is a privately owned island in the middle of national park and forestland, and being there is like stepping back in time. It’s a first-class opportunity to really get back to nature.”

parade etiquette

d il lon so uth

To make the Parade of Homes experience enjoyable for you and other participants, please keep the following guidelines in mind: 1. Please observe all parking signage and take care not to block neighboring driveways. 2. Please remove your shoes or wear the provided booties in each of the homes. 3. Please purchase your entry wristband at City Market or online prior to visiting the

first home, and keep your entry wristband visible for the duration of the event.

4. Please no smoking, eating or drinking in the homes. 5. Please respect all furnishings, as they are private property. 6. Please respect off-limits area signage in these private homes. 7. Some homes will have a designated public bathroom. Please ask to be directed

to an appropriate restroom before using the facilities.

8. Please monitor your children at all times. There are many fragile items in the

residences, and homes are not child-proofed.

9. Please ask permission before taking photos. There may be professional images

of the home available to you online.

We encourage you to ask questions of the people working at each home; they are there to offer information. You should find a variety of resources, including information on architects, builders, kitchen designers, interiors designers and more, in each of the homes.

committee letter from the summit county builders association

Welcome to the 18th annual Parade of Homes, proudly hosted by the Summit County Builders Association. The builders in our mountain community have produced another incredible array of homes to showcase in this year’s Parade, from outstanding single-family dwellings to dazzling multi-family units to remarkable remodels that illustrate what can be achieved when revamping an older home. We’re pleased that our builders continue to shine in a challenging environment, and we’re especially proud that high-quality craftsmanship and overall excellence still prevail when it comes to building or buying a home in Summit County. While the Parade of Homes is our opportunity to show off the talents of our members and others, it’s also an opportunity to give back to the community. Proceeds from ticket sales are donated to The Summit Foundation, a local organization that provides ongoing support to dozens of charitable causes and vital community endeavors. We appreciate your contributions and support. Tickets for this year’s Parade will be sold at the Summit County branches

2012 Summit County Parade of Homes Committee

of Bank of the West, which will donate an additional $2 for each ticket sold.

Tickets will also be available online, at City Markets in Breckenridge and Dillon, and at some of the Parade homes. Tickets may be traded in for wristbands at any of the homes on the tour, and the wristbands are good for both weekends of the Parade. The planning and preparation for each year’s Parade of Homes requires time and dedication from dozens of people, and we owe a giant thanks to our Diamond Sponsor, Breckenridge Building Center, as well as our corporate sponsors, Bank of the West, Cutting Edge Woodworking, Specialty Wood Products, the Summit Association of Realtors and While You’re Not Home. This event would not be the success it is without their support. We also owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the volunteers and committee members who work hard all year long to ensure the event’s success. Just as importantly, we thank you, our guests, for taking the time to tour the featured homes in Summit County. We hope you enjoy this year’s Parade!

Understanding the Framework of Construction Cost The cost to build homes varies across the country. Geographic location, size and style are all contributing factors to the construction cost. Because of various site conditions, desired aesthetics and engineering requirements, homes built in Summit County, Colorado, are typically designed from the ground up as custom homes. Before the first shovel hits the ground, permits, as well as tap, line extension and impact fees, can cost as much as $45,000 without adding any noticeable value to the home. Summit County has a mandated sustainable building code called the Summit Sustainable Building Code. This code can add an additional 300 percent to the cost of insulation. Because Summit County is located in climate zone 7, which is equivalent to locations in northern Canada, additional consideration is given to higher U-values for windows and doors, better insulation methods and R-values for walls and roofs, specialized air-sealing techniques and methods, unique flashing details and electrical needs. Heavy snow loads, frost depths and wind loads result in extreme engineering requirements that call for additional structural steel or framing requirements, as well as additional concrete that simply isn’t necessary in other parts of the country. Finally, some homeowners’ associations require certain types of exterior finishes and architectural elements that significantly increase costs, as superior quality finishes can quickly add $100 per square foot. To learn more about construction in the high country, visit the Summit County Builders Association blog at blog.summitcountybuilders.org and website at summitcountybuilders.org.

Silverthorne

description This paired home is part of the newest phase at Angler Mountain Ranch. The 192-acre ranch features paired homes, cabins and custom home lots set in a quintessential Colorado setting with unparalleled views of the Gore Range. With so many lifestyle features, including a private lake for fishing and boating, access to the Blue River for gold medal fly-fishing, and access to the Summit County bike path and a national forest trailhead, the ranch offers something for everyone. Our homes combine rustic elegance with upscale design elements that bring the beauty of the outdoors inside. Our newest floor plan features main-level living with the master suite, great room, dining room, kitchen and garage all on the main level. Guest bedrooms and a media room are located in the walk-out lower level. The kitchen has knotty alder cabinetry, trim, doors, solid slab granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances as standard finishes. In-floor radiant heat is used throughout. There is a southwest-facing deck and patio to take in the majestic mountain views. Inquire for more information about the many upgrade and finish options. If the paired home is not for you, we also offer single-family-cabin homes that offer the freedom of lock-and-leave living. All maintenance is taken

care of by the HOA. These homes feature larger square footage and an open floor plan, two master suites and two-level living. Cabin homes are designed for those who need a little more elbow room and want more privacy, yet still have the advantages of worryfree living. All the maintenance is taken care of so your time can be spent enjoying the great outdoors. Custom home lots are also available, so you can design your dream home with unsurpassed views, great sun and still enjoy all the amenities the ranch offers. Drop by and visit and we will show you around.

Silverthorne

description This home was built with both budget and family living in mind, with ample thought given to creating intimate and practical spaces. The owners are appreciative of the great collaboration they shared with the builders, architect and every subcontractor on the project. As you approach the property along a series of switchbacks, varying roof lines, along with a blend of wood, stone and steel, present an inviting appearance. The main level is open and appealing, with reclaimed hardwood flooring and a soaring, weathered fireplace that defines both the kitchen and living room, while giving warmth to the dining nook, foyer and loft above. The upscale kitchen, with aged white custom cabinetry, black soapstone countertops and stainless-steel appliances, also has a fun chalkboard door that leads into a nearby butler’s pantry. A custom built-in bench in the casual dining nook allows two or 12 to sit comfortably around the large farmhouse table. Creatively re-used materials on the ceiling in the dining nook and foyer tie the rustic exterior to these interior spaces. The cozy living room perfectly frames the Gore Range views, while large Dutch doors lead to the wraparound porch with views of the adjacent open space, which an abundance of wildlife call home. Designed with a new family in mind, the second level houses a loft, children’s rooms that share a vintage Jack-and-Jill bathroom, and extensive travertine tilework, along with a double slipper pedestal tub in the master bath. The lower walk-out level is wide open, with room for kids to play, a guest suite and a bar for

entertaining. French doors lead to an expansive flagstone patio with hot tub and a yard that backs to Angler Mountain Ranch’s open space and trails. Throughout the home, a vintage impression is merged with new style to create a refined, rustic feel.

Mountain lodge design evolves by: julie sandberg and debbie ellison, mountain comfort furnishings

Windswept mountains, quaking aspens and rocky terrain create picturesque backdrops for our wonderful mountain homes. The Rocky Mountains have always provided the perfect setting for lodge-style furnishings, which feel right at home in the grandest mountain chalets and the most space-conscious ski condos. As all things change, the mountain-lodge style has evolved over the years. The focus has shifted to creating warmth and texture in the home by layering wood and fabric design elements in complementary finishes. Furnishings now feature natural textures, sleeker silhouettes and metal finishes, which often make appearances throughout the home. Repeating these elements everywhere from lighting and handrails to occasional tables and artwork is the secret to creating a cohesive design. Color remains a great way to express the personality of your mountain home. The colors, patterns and textures you select for your paint, rugs, textiles and furnishings are the keys to creating a warm, inviting space. Mountain-lodge furnishings can be tailored to every shape, size, budget and personal taste. Whether you’re able to visit our local showroom or work with our design team long distance, the individual and personalized attention you’ll receive will help you create your ideal mountain retreat—and showcase the show-stopping natural beauty that Summit County provides. Please visit our showroom at 507 Summit Boulevard in beautiful Frisco, Colorado. It’s not just furniture, it’s a lifestyle!

description This exposed beam home was designed for the views. Placement required sensitivity to and mitigation of wetlands. Douglas fir 12- to 16-inch dimensional beams and large expanses of windows frame the Ten Mile Range, Dillon Reservoir, horse pastures and abundance of wildlife on this 35-acre parcel. The hand-carved Great River front entry door pays homage to their neighboring elk herd. The homeowners, a young newlywed couple, needed a home they could grow into; a home that expressed their youthful tastes while incorporating timeless finishes. The Mountain Log Homes of Colorado team was engaged to help these first-timers through the numerous selections and decisions required, from inspiration to installation, with ease. Custom cherry floors and cabinets, custom window coverings, and the warm, subtle tones of the paint, slate and stone are the home’s more traditional features. The surprises come in the tile details: a silkscreened aspen-tree motif in the master shower; mosaic glass paired with honey onyx in the powder room; leathered and metallic finishes for the wet bar; and iridescent Italian glass on the kitchen backsplash. These pops of brilliance keep things fresh and fun. Downstairs, it’s obvious the couple enjoys relaxing and entertaining. In addition to a guest bedroom and future nursery, the lower level includes a media room equipped with current and vintage video games housed in lacquered cabinetry. Theater-style, soft ultrasuede seating encourages you to get comfortable. Stamped and stained concrete floors are pet-, kid- and party-friendly. And the pool table and wet bar

area open to the outdoors, where a custom fire pit and paver patio offer the perfect spot for roasting marshmallows and watching a vibrant sunset. An oversized three-car garage accommodates all of the couple’s toys and also includes a cozy second-floor studio for a caretaker or overnight guests. Designed with sustainability in mind, the home has an ENERGY STAR HERS Index score of 49, which was partially accomplished with a photovoltaic system.

description Craig Naill, owner of Silverthorne-based Naill Construction, recently transformed this home overlooking Lake Dillon on “The Ridge” in the Summerwood subdivision. The extensive renovation, which was completed in just four short months, included the demolition of the existing interiors and a redesign of the home’s entire layout. All of the windows were replaced—including two-story arched windows that frame dramatic views of Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile Range— and new living areas were added inside and out. On the main level, expanded rooms feature stone walls and columns that blend seamlessly with walnut floors. Custom-made arched walnut doors are accented by stone arches, and a Starlight ceiling system in the dining room, living room and loft allows for indoor stargazing. The open kitchen features beautifully detailed, two-tone distressed alder cabinetry, slab granite countertops and GE Monogram appliances. The main-level master suite showcases a fauxleather wallcovering, a fireplace with floating hearth and floor-to-ceiling windows, and offers access to the main deck. A lower-level master suite features oversized windows, a ledgestone accent wall and fireplace. A loft overlooking the living room offers even more spectacular mountain views. Naill, who has been building homes in Summit County for more than 24 years, took great care

to incorporate the owners’ vision and ideas into the reimagined space. The result: a one-of-akind residence full of luxury and comfort.

description This Keystone townhome is the result of a collaboration between two couples who purchased the townhome and set about making it their own. Working with Tonka Builder’s Blake Nudell, the foursome updated elements that spanned the townhome’s interior. From the entry, it’s clear that the home has been upgraded with an eye to comfort and in keeping with a mountain vernacular. A slate entry floor transitions into reclaimed oak flooring that continues through the hallway into the living and dining rooms and kitchen. Elsewhere, carpet in muted tones covers the floors, contrasting nicely with the other colors in the home. Previously painted woodwork was re-painted in earth tone shades. Those muted tones are in place throughout, from the woodwork to flooring, cabinets to tile and fixtures. The kitchen transformation includes custom distressed cabinets to replace the former standard box elements; these new cabinets perfectly complement the reclaimed oak floor. Granite countertops with a former two-level countertop converted into a single service counter is a welcome change from the plastic laminate that was previously in place. The living area of the home is warm and inviting, with custom woodwork in place around the mantel, housing the entertainment center and

framing the television. The custom wine bar was created with corks inlaid under a glass top. Two master suites are situated in the upper and lower levels of the townhome, creating private living areas for each couple. In the upper level, an unused owner’s closet was converted into a bathroom, an ideal solution for previously empty space. The lower-level master bath was upgraded with his-and-hers vanities, along with etched tile in the custom shower. These renovations and upgrades have created an exceptional welcoming destination for the owners each time they venture to the mountains.

start with a budget, end with a smile by: Asa Nimityongskul, Pinnacle Mountain Homes

The collapse of the United States economy in 2008 sent shockwaves throughout the nation, and the construction industry became a primary victim. In the aftermath, it became clear that an ideological shift was needed in order to chart a path for the next generation of custom-home building. photo by Darren Edwards Photographs

In years past, our clients traditionally began the process of creating a custom home by working with a realtor to purchase land. Then they hired an architect, designed a beautiful home, and, finally, engaged a builder. Cost was often an afterthought. But with tightened credit markets and money no longer growing on proverbial trees, we’re now seeing a generation of savvy clients who are completely reversing the process. Now they start with the builder, create a budget, then find land and engage an architect to design a home that fits their budget. By choosing a contractor first, clients know exactly what to expect and what’s financially feasible. Sophisticated software allows contractors to estimate costs based on early hand sketches— typically within 5 percent of the eventual cost—and guide the design process, providing clear expectations along the way. Having a clearly defined budget at the onset allows clients to decide how to allocate funds toward a particular lot, a particular architect, and more importantly, the eventual home they will create. A contractor can evaluate a potential building site and provide feedback about potentially unforeseen construction issues, as well as hidden costs or opportunities. And when speaking with architects, a contractor can be instrumental in navigating designs, often suggesting less expensive alternatives with little impact to the finished product. Clients who start the home-building process with a general contractor inevitably have far fewer surprises and a much more enjoyable home building experience.

description Inigo and Patricia Domenech had long been interested in purchasing a home along the river in Keystone. They wanted to be near their relatives and have a place for family gatherings. They were also drawn to the home’s spectacular lot, which has a river running through the backyard. Several years ago, they were able to realize their dream when the house became available. They purchased it and decided to fix it up a bit to meet the needs of their young family. When Inigo was ready to begin remodeling his home, he called upon Sweet Homes of Colorado, which had previously worked on the house next door. Sweet Homes collaborated with architect Darrick Wade of Bostad Group on a design that would meet the owners’ needs while minimizing the home’s impact on the lot and the neighborhood. The goal was a structure that would blend into the environment rather than stand out. The improvements included a new entry, an additional garage bay and a connection between the garage and the main house. The design team also created a larger dining room, a new kitchen, an additional bedroom and a re-built deck, and added new windows and a completely new heating system. New interior finishes and exterior siding and trim completed the makeover.

The final result is a home that the family and their friends will enjoy for years, and possibly generations, to come.

A longtime retreat for a Cincinnati family with a passion for skiing and high-country recreation, this home has quite literally risen from the ashes. In the winter of 2010, the home burned to the ground. Today, the structure represents the phoenix. Architect Janet L. Sutterley was retained to design a new home with a completely new program. The ultimate challenge was to accomplish this while utilizing the existing foundation and footprint. Turning a negative into a positive was the goal, and this project became an opportunity to create new river-oriented features, such as riverside walkout where a crawlspace and mechanical room once existed. The home would also need to maintain the look and feel of the old Keystone neighborhood. Both architect and builder shared the responsibility to recreate a home on the site where the owners and their family have made nearly 20 years of memories. The new home features log accents throughout, one of the county’s finest beetle-kill-log spiral staircases, and reclaimed oak floors sourced from an old tobacco barn. The home was designed and finished to accommodate the owners’ growing grandchildren—and to honor memories of the previous home that couldn’t be forgotten. The energy efficiency of this new home exceeds that of the old structure, thanks to a high-efficiency boiler and super-insulated walls and roof.

description Located on Peak 8 in Breckenridge’s Timber Trail neighborhood, this is Breckenridge’s first and only ski-in/ski-out, net-zero-energy luxury home. This green energy marvel marries European alpine architecture with geothermal and solar energy, and advanced insulating and materials technologies. Despite its size—7,100 square feet, with 6 bedrooms—this is the most energy efficient ski-in/skiout luxury home ever built in Breckenridge. Fine attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the home’s construction, from engineering and technology to materials and design. Highlights include expansive interior and exterior local stone features, a winding, three-story carved-stone staircase, reclaimed and reconstructed interior doors, and towering ceilings with post-and-beam construction. Living spaces include three master suites, a “kitchen in the round,” a large recreation room with an adjoining home theater and an elevator to access it all. A home-automation system combines energy management and lighting control with security and a whole-house audio/visual system. A geothermal system with 19 wells and a 20-kW solar array combine to heat and power the home. Add to that a ski-in/ski-out location and commanding views of mountains and the ski area, and this home sets a new standard for sustainability and luxury in Breckenridge.

purple rules the roost in 2013 Interior designer Lynn Myers reveals the hottest hues for your home in 2013 B y: ly n n M y e r s , H arm o n y I n t e ri o r s , l l c

Home design trends for 2013 offer the discerning homeowner many choices, from smart technology to raw finishes. Trends will signify an ode to vintage—including creative uses of recycling and transforming old into new—but still fit into the realm of modern convenience and technology. Handcrafted pieces will find a home among chunky textiles and brilliant colors. And when it comes to color for the home, the most-talked-about hue is purple, which will be complemented with yellow. In the company’s annual color forecast, Benjamin Moore has developed the theme of “intersection,” which is influenced by the concepts of flow, cycle, animate and connect. “Flow” addresses color, texture and shapes that have been altered to reinvent the past; “cycle” refers to the concept of breathing new life into something that was once disposable; “animate” examines the intensity and purity of color with happiness in mind; and “connect” illuminates the familiar and material world, resulting in a matrix where technology evolves into an organic form. “As we look to the future, we find that our ideas are rooted in the past,” Benjamin Moore’s Andrea Magno says. “What’s new is in the details.” According to the Benjamin Moore forecast, trends for fall 2012 and 2013 include: •

Bright greens and grassy greens, each reflecting a bit of the ’80s

Red-orange and deep denim blues, supported by a cast of yellow-ochre shades

Purples and yellows in materials that are knitted, folded, crimped or otherwise textured

Purple as a new neutral, ranging in shade from rich indigo or plum to grayed-down hues

Blues with a Caribbean tone, like turquoise and Cerulean blue, that are influenced by purple

Wood tones as the inspiration for neutrals

Yellow and ochre variations that set the stage for bursts of cadmium orange and denim blues

272 County road 529

description When Cincinnati couple John and Julie started planning their Breckenridge vacation home, John envisioned “a cabin in the woods with an outhouse.” But Julie had other ideas. And so they turned to Brian and Karen Wray for his construction expertise and her creative finish inspiration to help them meet in the middle. What you see today is a livable, comfortable home that meets both John and Julie’s needs. The home is constructed of locally harvested 12- to 14-inch average diameter blue pine handcrafted logs. The use of local materials makes the home not only more economical, but more sustainable as well. Power bills stay at a minimum thanks to a HERS Index score of 52 accomplished through ICF foundation, SIPS panel roofing, Low-E windows and detailed chinking and insulation. Sikkens gray stain and complementary chinking allows the logs’ natural beetle scars and blue stain to show. These natural characteristics, combined with a teak stain on the purlins, make the new home feel right at home in the mature neighborhood. The reclaimed-barnwood front entry door and pre-finished interior doors are all custom made, and engineered Hallmark floors lend a comfortable, aged feel to the interiors. The Wrays even found a way to incorporate John’s favorite color, purple, into the home. It makes an appearance in the Wild Sea granite, backsplash tile, paint and upholstery. You won’t find any wasted space in this 2,800-square-foot plan. A covered walkway

connects the detached garage to the main level, which means the owners never have to haul groceries or ski gear up or down the stairs. A spacious master suite is situated on the main floor, while two lower-level bedrooms accommodate four queen beds and share a Jackand-Jill-style bath. A media room incorporates comfy leather chairs, a pub table, wet bar and high-quality audio/visual equipment, making it the perfect spot for family gatherings.

Highlights & sponsors • 2,800 square feet living, 600-square-foot detached garage • 12”-14” average diameter beetle-kill pine handcrafted logs • Aluminum-clad Low- E windows by Sierra Pacific Windows & Doors • Hallmark prefinished wide-plank floors by Vantia Floors • Barn wood and prefinished alder doors by Sun Mountain Doors • Shades of Elegance roller shades by Horizon B&W • Heat & Glo Slim Line fireplaces by Western Fireplace • Cabinet design and materials by Kitchenscapes • ProPanel Metal Roof by G&G Roofing • Hand-troweled walls by Coffin Brothers Drywall • Energy Star and testing by Active Energies • T ile by Bohemia Tile

hot kitchen Trends

The designers at Aspen Grove Kitchen & Bath report on the materials, colors and storage solutions that are on trend in kitchen design by: Linda miller, Aspen grove kitchen & Bath

Though some are saying “black is the new white” when it comes to kitchen cabinetry , grays, grayed-down browns and shades of taupe are on the rise in mountain homes. Homeowners have also been requesting deep, rich woods for their cabinets, such as walnut and wenge, in simpler door styles than in the past. Maple, alder, walnut and bamboo are replacing more traditional wood materials like pine, oak and cherry. Clean, open layouts for the kitchen—with a focus on functionality—are all the rage. Smart storage features include roll-out shelves, drawers with dish dividers, pull-out waste baskets, spice dividers and lazy susans. Chunky, floating shelves are being used to house dishes and bowls (and to artistically display collectibles), in place of wall cabinets. Granite is still a popular choice for countertops, but quartz products by manufacturers like Silestone and Cambria are being sought after for their eco-friendly attributes (and because they don’t require any sealer). For budget-conscious projects, plastic laminate is an excellent choice, especially with the new options available such as stone look-alikes and textures that mimic granite. Flooring options run the gamut from large-format tile that looks like natural stone to sleek engineered wood and salvaged barn wood. Tile that mimics wood, complete with the appearance of grain and saw cuts, is new to the market and becoming popular. Bamboo and cork are still being favored for their green attributes. Glass mosaic backsplashes add a sparkly finishing touch to the space, whether composed of all glass tiles in a variety of textures, shapes and colors, or glass tile mixed with natural stone. At Aspen Grove Kitchen & Bath, Inc., we offer a variety of products from builder-grade to custom cabinets, tile, countertops and decorative hardware, as well as services for complete kitchen and bath design for any space or budget. Our team of designers has 50 years of cumulative design experience. Visit our showroom at 721 Granite Street, #A1, in Frisco.

description Legend has it that at the end of a battle, warring Native American tribes would come together to break an arrow. The broken arrow then became a symbol of peace between the tribes. This legend provided a conceptual foundation for the design of this beautiful mountain-modern home. The “Broken Arrow” residence is the perfect example of energy efficient design meeting sustainable construction. Designed by AllenGuerra Design and built by J&E Development, this ENERGY STAR-rated home is sited to take full advantage of southern sun exposure for passive solar heat gain. The residence showcases a wide variety of sustainable building materials, including ARXX insulating concrete forms for the foundation, Dow structural insulated sheathing supplied by Breckenridge Building Center, locally sourced stone from Telluride Stone Company, Caesarstone recycled-content countertops, American Clay natural earth wall plaster, a photovoltaic system installed by Innovative Energy, Sierra Pacific FSC-certified windows, and Environmental Stewardship Program-certified Eco Veneer cabinetry by Kitchencraft. The super-insulated home package by Rocky Mountain Spray Foam provides the structure with an advanced air-sealing package, while Demilec Agribalance high-density, open-cell spray-foam insulation provides an R-50 insula-

tion value for the unvented roof assembly. Costconscious blown-fiberglass insulation by Spider gives walls an R-23 insulation value, which exceeds current energy code requirements. A whole-house heat-recovery-ventilator system installed by HPM Services ensures the tightly built home has a constant supply of HEPAfiltered fresh air. This impressive array of sustainable building materials and methods, combined with a rare level of craftsmanship, results in a near-net-zeroenergy home that’s as beautiful and peaceful as it is sustainable.

Highlights

Apex Mountain Homes invites you to experience intown-casual, comfortable living. Set near the heart of Frisco, this primary residence is steps from Frisco Bay Marina and close to the town’s historic Main Street. With views of Buffalo Mountain to the north and Mt. Royal to the west, it is well located for both town and recreational access. A custom design resulted in an elongated footprint that arches across the historic infill property; a former settler’s cabin was removed to make way for the home. Inside, hand-scraped maple floors, three natural stone fireplaces and a gourmet kitchen help create an exceptional dwelling. The centerpiece of this wellcrafted home is the kitchen. Stained and distressed custom cabinets of knotty alder combine with antique accents in an eye-catching installation. Elaborate scrolls and glass inserts in the cabinets complement the dramatic chiseled-edge granite countertops, while stainless GE Monogram appliances provide high-end form and function. Two sinks, a generous island and a breakfast bar help create a natural center of activity for family and friends. Upstairs, a natural stone fireplace warms the master bedroom, which also boasts a custom walk-in closet and elegant master bath with striking granite countertops. Three additional bedrooms and a thoughtfully designed laundry room round out the upper level. The lower level invites entertaining with a stone fireplace, granite-topped wet bar and built-in cabinetry. A study or craft room could be easily created from the fifth bedroom. Exemplifying true Apex fashion, this home features in-floor, radiant heat with a 95%-efficient boiler system, and triple-pane windows containing between-the-glass window coverings. Utilizing the firm’s key qualities of superior craftsmanship, efficient management, professional integrity and exceptional value, Apex Mountain Homes has created an outstanding Summit County custom home.

Changing Trends in Remodeling Television networks like HGTV and DIY produce home-improvement content 24 hours a day ; magazines, websites and blogs feature happy homeowners gushing over perfect room makeovers; and, with the challenging economy, more homeowners are staying in their current residences instead of building new homes—all indicating that remodeling is on the rise. A survey released by the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) in 2012 shows that common remodeling projects have increased, compared to a similar survey from 2010. And nearly 50 percent of remodelers report seeing an increase in the number of homeowners who undertake remodels to avoid moving, compared to the 2010 findings. Since 2001, bathroom and kitchen remodels have remained the two most common types of projects, and 78 percent of survey respondents (an all-time high) cited bathroom remodeling as one of the most common jobs. Other popular jobs include window and door replacements, room additions, handyman services and whole-house remodeling—which is significantly down from its peak in the mid-2000s. Homeowners’ motivations for remodeling are also changing. The top two reasons for remodeling are the need to repair or replace old or outdated components and the desire for better and newer amenities. More than 50 percent of remodelers said that these two reasons have become more common during the past two years. Whether inspired by the amazing makeovers shown on television or driven by lifestyle changes to make more efficient use of their home’s square footage, homeowners are turning to professional remodelers to help improve their home. For more information about remodeling, go to summitcountybuilders.org or nahb.org/remodeling.

This ENERGY STAR-rated custom home is a model of efficiency, function and style. Located in Frisco’s Bill’s Ranch neighborhood, the residence is situated on a sunny site along Miner’s Creek, and was designed to make the most of the expansive views, natural light and solar exposure. The homeowners worked with the architect and builder to create a home that reflects their vision for a low-maintenance, high-performance home with a contemporary, open feel. Custom features make this home unique. The great room showcases floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Ten Mile Range, and a massive, custom-built Rumford wood-burning fireplace. In the dining room, sliding-glass doors open to an outdoor living area and beautiful creekside setting. Adjacent to the dining room is a custom-designed greenhouse; its glass ceiling serves as the floor of the upper-level master suite’s private deck. Less visible but equally impressive are the construction methods that make this home exceptionally efficient and sustainable. Advanced building methods allowed for an extremely efficient thermal envelope, and a heat-recovery-ventilation system ensures fresh, clean indoor air. Photovoltaic solar panels provide for roughly half of the home’s electrical needs, and solar thermal panels heat the home’s water. This innovative home is proof that quality is not just about fancy finishes, but about high-end construction—inside and out.

description This newly constructed Frisco home is an outstanding example of smart, efficient design on a budget. The well-appointed property features a variety of upscale elements and unique finishes, with almost no wasted space. Denise Roberts, owner of Frisco-based Lilli’s Lighting & Décor, worked with Bill Snead of WTS Builders, Inc. and Russ Palmer of Palmer Design Works to create her new dwelling. Roberts provided all of the lighting, interior design and furniture through her shop. The three-level home has a variety of rustic, alpine elements. A board-and-batten exterior with dry-stack stone accents, barn-wood entry door and metal roof set the tone for the home’s interior. A stonework and distressed-wood interior wall on the main floor appears to be an extension of the home’s exterior. Elsewhere, corrugated-metal roofing is applied to the wall surface, echoing the exterior. The kitchen area—with adjoining dining and hearth rooms—features a travertine floor and distressed custom dark alder wood cabinets provided by Cutting Edge Woodworking. Granite

counters with a travertine and Italian glass backsplash complete the look in the heart of the home. The dry-stack moss-rock fireplace carries custom ductwork that directs warm air to the lower level of the home. Floors feature a mix of hardwood, carpet in the private areas, travertine tile, stone and stained concrete. The lower level is built for entertaining, and features a family room, home theater and game area. In a nod to the owner’s lifestyle, the staircase handrails were cut from ski lift cable that was formerly used on Lift 4 at Loveland Ski Area, where the owner and her husband once worked. With an economy of design, efficient use of square footage and tremendous street appeal, this is a home built to be used by a real family.

REFINED RUSTIC A FAMILY’S UTAH HOUSE TRANSLATES SOPHISTICATED EUROPEAN STYLE WITH RUGGED WESTERN MATERIALS

STORY BY CAREN KURLANDER

PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRYAN ROWLAND & SUSAN BEDNAR LONG


PHOTO BY BRYAN ROWLAND

Eric and Shauna Varvel wanted their Deer Valley, Utah, residence to speak to its mountain site but with a sophisticated European vocabulary. They brought in French architect Jean-Yves Lacroix to establish the direction they had in mind. Lacroix designed a two-story house and then clad the entire structure with pale Utah limestone. Copper tiles crown the roof and metal windows punctuate the façade. “You don’t see many houses like this around here,” Lacroix says. “But it works very well for Utah.”

For the home’s interiors, Connecticut-based interior designer Susan Bednar Long created an atmosphere that balances European elements with Western tradition. Long divided the spacious great room into intimate sitting areas. A leather-upholstered Ralph Lauren sofa pairs with two Ralph Lauren armchairs covered with Holland & Sherry’s County Tweed fabric. A custom-made, round low table, wrapped with raffia and lacquered a bold green hue, adds texture, while Oly Studio’s goatskin Neta bench hits a Western note.


CONNECTICUT DESIGNER SUSAN BEDNAR LONG HAD NEVER WORKED IN UTAH. But when her longtime clients Shauna and Eric Varvel asked her to take a look at their summer residence near Deer Valley, she was pleasantly surprised. “The house had a modern quality to it, which I really liked,” says Long, who honed her sophisticated sensibility working for Ralph Lauren before establishing her own firm, S.B. Long Interiors. “I knew I didn’t want to do anything hokey or inyour-face Western.” The Varvels weren’t interested in that look either, and were hoping instead for an environment that reflected both their family ties to Utah and their years spent living abroad. “We decided we wanted it to feel like the house in the movie A River Runs Through It,” Long says. “The narrator’s Montana home was furnished with elegant English antiques and evidence of a well-traveled life in an otherwise rustic setting. That set the tone.” That tone proved a good match for the structure itself. The Varvels worked with French-born, Swiss-trained and Park Citybased residential designer Jean-Yves Lacroix of Lacroix Design, and they gave him a similar directive. “They didn’t want a traditional mountain home,” Lacroix says. “They wanted something more European with a lot of stone.” To honor that request, Lacroix devised an upside-down floor plan, placing the bedrooms on the first floor and the expansive public spaces above. He vaulted the ceilings for a feeling of loftiness and left the woodand-metal ceiling assemblies exposed. “I don’t like to hide structural elements,” says Lacroix, who clad the house with a light-colored Utah limestone on the exterior façades and interior walls. “We wanted to give it the feel of a masonry-built home,” he adds. “What you see outside, you see inside.” The stone backdrop provides a rich counterpoint to the tailored interiors. In the great room, Long divided the large space into intimate sitting areas, which she appointed by walking the line between a formal English aesthetic and textured mountain style. “Though plaid is very indicative of England, you could also imagine a cowboy wearing a plaid shirt,” she says. “Using things that are specific to both aesthetics ties it all together.” A leather Ralph Lauren sofa and armchairs covered with a Holland & >> INTERIOR DESIGN BY S.B.

MATERIAL WORLD “The goal was really to push the texture,” designer Susan Bednar Long says of her approach to creating the interiors of Eric and Shauna Varvel’s Deer Valley, Utah, house. “I wanted it to feel Western without looking so obvious.” She accomplished this through a strategic use of materials. Long avoided using traditional hide rugs but covered ottomans in zebra hide or goatskin to hit the same note in a subtle way. She chose woods with character, like the wormy chestnut used in the mudroom, pantry and parts of the kitchen, to lend “a beautiful old feeling,” and worked with classic Western elements in surprisingly tailored ways. In the master bedroom, she topped an antler-base stool with rich cutvelvet and used an embossed leather from Rose Tarlow to upholster the headboard. “It’s very much about using natural, tactile materials in a way that has a familiarity without being literal,” she says. “You don’t want your guests to say, ‘Oh, look at that saddle!’” TOP: Long softened the master bedroom’s palette with grasscloth-covered walls and a bed canopy made from two wool fabrics. BOTTOM: Wormy chestnut wood gives the mudroom character. FACING PAGE: An armchair from Rose Tarlow Melrose House stands near a carved cabinet from Formations in the master bedroom’s sitting area.

“I DESCRIBE MY STYLE AS MODERN TRADITIONAL. IN THIS HOME, I USED A LOT OF TEXTURED AND TACTILE THINGS, BUT IN A VERY TAILORED WAY.”

Sherry tweed marry both influences, as does the pairing of a turned oak side table with a goatskin bench. Long chose accessories that strike a similar balance. Leather flanges and buckles on pillows lend a Western touch, while cleanlined oil-rubbed bronze-and-leather lamps cut a modern silhouette. “It’s a push and pull,” Long says of the mix. The breakfast room’s blue-and-red Navajo woven pillow fabric inspired the palette of the adjacent kitchen. For the kitchen cabinetry, the designer chose a military-blue hue and applied striae and umber techniques to the finish so that “it feels like it’s been around for awhile,” she says. The La Cornue range and copper pots suspended from a ceiling rack make the kitchen feel like “it could be in the south of France,” Long adds. That international motif is picked up again in the media room, where Long painted the wall paneling with Benjamin Moore’s Essex Green for an “English men’s club vibe.” Against the formal backdrop, she grouped a U-shaped leather sofa with an antique Bavarian antler chair and a vintage Ralph Lauren trunk.

136

Blue paneled walls define Eric Varvel’s office, where Long centered a dramatic antler chandelier above two hunter-green tuftedleather chairs and a zebra-skin ottoman. A painting Eric acquired while working in Singapore creates a striking focal point. “That painting is a departure from the West,” Long says. “And because the room feels kind of exotic, the zebra skin seemed an appropriate addition.” In the master bedroom, Long’s point of reference turned back to the Continent. “The inspiration for that room was the Hotel Zur Tenne in Austria,” the designer says. “The hotel has a mountain feel, but there’s a softness to it.” Long translated that Tyrolean sensibility with a muted color palette and lots of texture. An embossed-leather headboard is crowned with a canopy of two coordinating wool fabrics, while an antler mirror plays off a Rococo-style bedside table. She arranged elegant nineteenth-century Spanish chargers on a grasscloth-covered wall and chose a leather studded chest of drawers for its “rustic yet refined” look. The home’s artful blend of European influences, Western materials and the client’s own collected pieces creates an atmosphere that speaks to far-flung destinations while honoring its mountain locale. “Though well-traveled, this is a quintessentially American family,” Long says. “Their Utah roots run deep.” ○

THE NEW OLD WEST ALONG AN OLD RIVERBED NEAR JACKSON, WYOMING, AN INNOVATIVE RESIDENTIAL DESIGN MARRIES TRADITIONAL MATERIALS WITH MODERN FORMS

STORY BY NORMAN KOLPAS

138

PHOTOGRAPHY BY GIBEON PHOTOGRAPHY

ARCHITECTURE BY WARD + BLAKE ARCHITECTS


Beyond the custom bronze front door, a double-sided fireplace fashioned from hot-rolled steel defines the entry foyer. Visible from either side of the fireplace is the living room’s breathtaking view of the Tetons. LEFT: A walkway leading to the main house was built using naturally weather-resistant ipe wood, which is harvested from a sustainably forested tropical tree. A system of gluedlaminated-timber columns and beams supports the walkway roof.

139


The dining area features a wall of south-facing windows that frame views of the barn, front pond and a meadow beyond. FACING PAGE, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: The European-style kitchen includes Miele stainless-steel appliances, custom cabinetry, granite countertops and floors of Russian birch. The front walkway forms a bridge over one of the property’s four manmade ponds. Vertical paneling in honey-hued Russian birch covers the walls of the master suite, complementing a laminated-bamboo ceiling and polished concrete floor.

“ VERY TRADITIONAL WESTERN-STYLE HOMES.” That’s what the design covenants required for new construction in this exclusive custom-home development in Jackson, recalls architect Tom Ward, co-principal of the award-winning local firm Ward+Blake Architects. Ward’s client, however, had something nontraditional in mind for his seven-acre site. “A progressive thinker,” as Ward describes him, he wanted a modern, versatile house. “It had to function efficiently for him and his wife when they were the only ones there,” Ward says, “but it also needed to welcome their large extended family and a constant procession of characters from all over the world.” How, then, to reconcile Western style with modernism? The architect’s solution was to build a series of “modern structures that paid attention to traditional building materials and techniques.” For the main house, Ward designed a clean-lined, single-story, 3,900-square-foot structure that is large enough for gracious entertaining, yet comfortable for two. He oriented the house so its main living areas face north, allowing walls of windows to frame views of the Tetons. Paying homage to the local vernacular, a palette of rustic building materials features shale quarried in eastern Idaho; century-old reclaimed pine, fir and spruce siding; and COR-TEN steel weathered to a rust-hued patina. Just 15 feet away from the main house—and connected by a glassed-in breezeway—stands a 3,346-square-foot, >>

“The house’s linear design enables it to frame the views of the Tetons to the north,” architect Tom Ward says. With a ceiling rising from 11 to 16 feet high, the north-facing living room (left) juts out into a manmade pond fringed with local grasses and aspen trees native to the site. The palette of building materials Ward selected—shale, reclaimed pine, fir and spruce siding, and weathered COR-TEN steel—satisfies the development’s traditional building regulations while also helping the house feel rooted in its surroundings. “I like to think of the style as a sort of ‘dirty modernism,’” Ward says. “Not sleek and clean but a bit fuzzy around the edges.”

barn-shaped log structure. It contains the garage and home theater/game room on its main floor, with guest accommodations upstairs. Ward’s design slyly “adds a new twist to an old form,” he says, with long, thin strips of laminated glass replacing the expected chinking between the logs (see sidebar). Despite the expansive surroundings, the house, barn and grounds occupy less than one acre, near a long line of aspen trees on an old riverbed that is “flat as a flounder,” Ward says. The architect had the site built up by about three feet, not only to bring it even with an adjacent natural rock bench but also to raise the buildings well above the water table, just 18 inches below the original surface. “If you dig a hole here,” Ward says, “you get a pond.” The Ward+Blake team decided to use that challenge to their advantage. Working with landscape architects Jim Verdone and Brannon Bleggi of Jackson-based VLA Inc., they made water an integral part of the home’s setting. Fed by a well drilled specifically for the project, water circulates among four manmade ponds surrounding the buildings and their outdoor decks. An above-grade watercourse between two of the ponds fills the air with peaceful sounds that mask traffic noise from a nearby highway. “During the day,” Ward says, “the effect of all that water is rather tranquil, and in the evening the ponds come alive as birds and other wildlife move in to drink.” It’s a perfect complement not only to the buildings but also to the natural wetlands that border the site—yet one more expression of how this home’s design respects the past while living in the present. ○

Mortar Chinking

THIS PAGE, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: A fire pit built into the edge of a slate walkway forms a focal point for a conversation area; architect Tom Ward designed the low curving screen of half-inch steel plates. Glass chinking between the barn’s dovetailed logs makes the structure appear to glow at night. Built into the walkway, the hot tub is just a short stroll from the barn and main house.

144

Gets a Makeover In his efforts to bring modern styling to traditional Western features, architect Tom Ward suggested to his client that, for the barn’s walls, they fill the gaps between the logs with glass instead of mortar chinking. The client enthusiastically agreed, and Ward found himself faced with a technical nightmare. “We know that logs sag over time,” he explains, “and if you squeeze glass between several thousand pounds of droopy logs, it will crack. The glass manufacturers and log guys we talked to thought we were nuts.” Fortunately, Ward and his colleagues came up with a solution, composed of two key elements:

A glass sandwich The four-inch-wide strips of glass are three-quarter-inch-thick laminated sandwiches composed of a central layer of strong yet flexible tempered glass and outer layers of textured, light-diffusing cast glass.

Steel shims Half-inch steel plates are set into grooves in the logs at six-foot intervals. The glass chinking is set into these plates, which serve as a stable interface that keeps the wood and glass from physically interacting. “We’re coming up on four years since we finished building, and there haven’t been any cracks yet,” Ward says.


“ IN DAYLIGHT, THE GLASS LOOKS LIKE

ORDINARY CHINKING BETWEEN THE LOGS. BUT AT NIGHT THE BARN RESEMBLES A LANTERN, SPILLING THE LIGHT FROM INSIDE ACROSS THE SURFACES OF THE PONDS.”

NATURAL ASSETS ARCHITECT COSTANTINO GRANDJACQUET HELPS A YOUNG FAMILY CREATE A HOME THAT IS ONE WITH THE UTAH LANDSCAPE—AND THE WESTERN EXPERIENCE

STORY BY ELISABETH A. SULLIVAN

“Utah is home to an amazing community of artists—and amazing landscapes that inspire them,” homeowner Jon-Eric Greene says. The painting above the great room fireplace is by Salt Lake City artist Andrzej Skorut. The custom sconces are by Hammerton. FACING PAGE: “I’ve always admired wine storage that’s brought into a room, not tucked away,” Jon-Eric says of the main-floor wine cellar. On the cellar’s outer wall, a bench from Paisley Pomegranate fits perfectly below a painting by Brad Overton from the Julie Nester Gallery in Park City.

“ LIGHT IS EVERYTHING IN A STRUCTURE. BEYOND OPENING UP TO THE VIEWS, WE WANTED A LOT OF WINDOWS TO LET IN PLENTY OF NATURAL LIGHT.”

The master bedroom opens onto a patio that “literally drops off into the pond,” Jon-Eric says. FACING PAGE, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: The master bathroom’s slatted ipe wood floor provides a warm contrast to the concrete tub platform and sculptural tub from Waterworks. The kitchen is outfitted with deep farmhouse sinks, Sub-Zero refrigerators, a Wolf range and an indoor grill. “I love the vertical grain of the quarter-sawn walnut,” Amanda Greene says of the master bathroom’s custom vanities; the “Mercury I” sconces are by Doyle Crosby.

ARCHITECTURE BY SUMMA ARS ARCHITECTS

HOMEOWNERS AND ARCHITECTS TYPICALLY GET THE LAY OF THE LAND before starting construction of a new home, but some take it more seriously than others. Jon-Eric and Amanda Greene are two such types. The couple bought 55 acres of ranch land in Park City, Utah, with plans to develop a 10-lot subdivision—and keep one building site for themselves. They selected an 8-acre parcel along the banks of two creeks, near a copse of oldgrowth cottonwoods. Jon-Eric, a commercial real estate broker and developer, and Amanda, a busy mom of three with a passion for design, knew they wanted to maximize the land’s natural assets and design their home with indoor/outdoor living in mind. But before they broke ground, they decided to give the site a test run. “We bought a huge 22-foot-wide tepee and put it up where we thought we might build the house,” Amanda says. “We spent many days and nights camping in that tepee, and it really helped us understand the views and angles of the sunlight—and how to site the house to make the most of them.” With help from architect Costantino Grandjacquet, principal of Park City-based Summa ARS Architects, and Jim Clifford of Jim Clifford Builders, the Greenes translated what they learned during their time in the tepee into a 7,400-square-foot home clad in stone, cedar and rusted steel that has a dynamic relationship with its environment. The structure bridges a creek, cozies >>

Rough-hewn ceiling beams and stone walls are de rigueur in traditional mountain lodges, but those same rugged elements can look clean-lined and contemporary, says architect Costantino Grandjacquet. “If we had chosen a different floor or traditional wood baseboards and trim, the house would have looked completely different,” he says. “By eliminating those elements and using concrete floors, we highlighted the stone without making it feel rustic.” LEFT: The dining room’s stone wall was designed to accommodate a largescale landscape painting by Utahbased artist Clay Wagstaff. The custom-designed walnut dining table expands to seat 12.

up to old-growth cottonwoods and manmade ponds, and captures expansive mountain views. Inside, the Greenes and Grandjacquet gave the home’s significant square footage a more intimate scale by forgoing an open-concept floor plan and vaulted ceilings. “Before we moved to Park City, we lived in a 1,200-squarefoot home with three kids and a dog,” Amanda says. “This new house is 8,500 square feet, including the space above the second garage, which feels so big by comparison. So my primary goal was to have intimate, defined spaces.” These intimate living spaces provide a sense of discovery that begins at the front entry. “The house kind of unfolds,” Jon-Eric says. “The main floor rooms are positioned around a central courtyard, so you have to explore around that central hub to experience the spaces and the views.” To keep the interiors’ concrete floors, stone walls and unadorned windows from feeling stark, Amanda chose a warm color palette and layered on natural textures with linen, wool and mohair upholstery. Custom furniture, including a glass-and-steel coffee table that Amanda designed, gives the space a contemporary edge, while soulful still-life scenes and large-scale landscape paintings add pops of color. Inside and out, rugged and traditional materials are used in contemporary ways, marrying the home to its environs. “At least once a day, as I walk from the bedroom to the kitchen, I look out across the pond at those views of Deer Valley and think, ‘I can’t believe how well this house is sited,’” Amanda says. “A big part of our success came from spending time camping on the lot.” As for the tepee? “It’s still here,” she says. “We just moved it across the creek.” ○

THIS PAGE, CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: The tepee that played such an important role in the Greenes’ home-planning process is still part of the landscape. Wire-brushed cedar windows and rusted-steel roofing give the home an intentionally weathered look. The home was sited to take advantage of the land’s natural assets; the master bedroom’s porch (far right) sits at the edge of a manmade pond. A screened porch provides space for dining and relaxing; the lounge furniture is by Restoration Hardware, and the galvanized-steel dining chairs are by Tolix. FACING PAGE: The outdoor dining area’s redwood table is built of wood reclaimed from a local mine’s water tanks. “We have dinner in the barbecue area as often as we can,” Jon-Eric says.

IN THEIR WORDS

MARK QUÉRIPEL PRINCIPAL ARCHITECT, MQ ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN, BOULDER, CO, MQAD.COM

SHANNON SCHUTZ PRESIDENT, DWELLINGS INTERIOR DESIGN, DENVER, CO, DWELLINGSINTERIORDESIGN.COM

“I do a lot of design work for hotels, so I’m often out looking at huge buildings and need to examine little crevices or look behind walls. The Flashlight app is a practical feature that I use on the job site all the time. The other day I was on a ladder trying to look up in the ceiling, and nobody had a ‘flashlight’ but me!”

ASHLEIGH WEATHERILL PRINCIPAL DESIGNER, ASHLEIGH WEATHERILL INTERIOR DESIGN, DENVER, CO, HALCYONHOUSEDESIGN.COM

“We often recommend that our clients use the Houzz app to gather ideas while we’re developing a home’s design. It helps them solidify their thinking and represent in pictures what is often difficult to put into words. The beauty of this reference tool is it’s so vast that you can’t help but find ideas that appeal to you. You can pick a specific room type or architectural style and the app will pull up hundreds of choices.”

“For on-the-fly sketching and design detail development, I use Sketch Memo, which is kind of like an electronic pad of paper. You can add graph lines to create a sense of scale and make drawing a little easier, or you can just freehand using your finger on your iPad. You can draw a quick little chair or copy and paste objects. When I have measurements for window treatments, I’ll add those to the sketch. I use the app to provide a quick visual for a client or contractor.”

BETH IMBORNONI INTERIOR DESIGNER, VALLONE DESIGN, SCOTTSDALE, AZ, VALLONEDESIGN.COM

“I find color inspiration everywhere, from fashion to food to interiors, and Sherwin Williams’ Color Snap app allows me to document and specify colors when I’m out with clients or traveling. If I like the color of a room or the finish of a piece of furniture, I’ll take a picture of it and the app will match the shade to a specific Sherwin Williams paint color. There’s also a feature called ‘color alterations’ that generates the other shades that would appear on the same paint swatch; another feature offers coordinating colors. It gives me great ideas and starting places.”

DESIGN PROS’ FAVORITE APPS

Oh, the things our gadgets can do! For many creative pros, smartphones and tablets are as essential to the design process as pencil and paper. Here, a few of our techsavvy top mountain architects and designers share the apps they turn to on the job

MICHAEL FORD PROJECT MANAGER, APPARATUS ARCHITECTURE, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, APPARATUS.COM

“I like to use Photosynth, which is an automatic photo-stitcher. When I’m out looking at a site or building, I use my iPhone camera to capture an image. The app creates a planetarium effect; I can swipe the screen to get a view of the entire space. It’s as if I’m standing in the room or on the site and can look in any direction I want.”

DAVID DALTON PRINCIPAL DESIGNER, DAVID DALTON, INC., LOS ANGELES, CA, DAVIDDALTONINC.COM

“If my work takes me to an unfamiliar city and I want to know where to go, I like to use NearMe, which tells me what’s right around me. I recently found myself in Paris with a couple of extra hours, and I knew I was in an area with good shopping, but I wasn’t sure what small galleries were nearby. The app allowed me to search by category of business, gave me a short description of each place and told me how to get there.”
