Steel House

Colorado

 

Perched on the edge of a beautiful canyon, this stunning house presents a modest image to the street. The house steps down the hillside and opens up to spectacular views of the nearby creek, adjacent canyon wall and distant mountains. Multi-level terraces extend the living spaces toward the canyon’s edge. The site had been aggressively cleared and graded by previous owners to accommodate two homes, a barn and horse paddocks. MBLA worked closely with Landforms Inc. to reshape the site to a more natural topography and to revegetate the property with extensive groves of aspen and blue spruce. Originating at the house's lower terraces, a trail network circuitously navigates the site’s forests, meadows and glades. A series of distinct experiences unfolds along the route as it winds through the property, capturing views of the creek, distant peaks and strategically placed sculptures.
