228A Mining Style

Mountain Home


5,000 sq. ft.

The design of this house, built high in the Rocky Mountains, draws from traditional vernacular mining structures of the region. The home offers 5,000 sq. ft. of living space and contains five bedrooms.

The shape of the building and its materials - such as rusted steel and timbers along with traditional steel connectors - are reminiscent of a mine and mill facility on the exterior and interior. The main entry leads directly to the steel, cage-style elevator which exits onto a bridge that connects the two primary forms of the house. This connection leads to the main living level, which is approximately 50 feet above the entry from the road. These details combine to create a mining style home that fits perfectly into the local history of the region.
