Architect:Kelly & Stone ArchitectsDesigners:Alpine DesignBuilder:Mike Roberts Odyssey ConstructionType:ResidenceMike Roberts, the builder of this beautiful mountain home, believed that a home should be integrated into its surroundings. This tenant inspired both the architecture and interior design of this home, which is energy efficient and off the grid. The clients wanted to create a place for family and friends to escape, a space where stress melted away and nature inspired a simpler way of living. The clients live an active lifestyle and the mudroom is usually filled with snow boots, hiking shoes, ski boots and all the snow, dirt and mud to go with them. I designed a sustainable, functional, and stylish mudroom to meet these needs. A cozy modern mountain fireplace featuring steel, stone, and wood acts as a focal point in the living room. In the master bath a silver claw foot tub compliments grey porcelain and a river rock shower basin. Both the fireplace and the shower floor feature stone common in the Yampa Valley and elegantly integrate outdoor aesthetics into indoor spaces.
