This new home for an international client was inspired by the owner’s affinity for European mountain chalets and memories of family time spent at Swiss ski resorts. With the exception of the art gallery and media room, which are located in the basement, the 7,500-square-foot house sprawls comfortably on one level. Sited and massed to be integral to its landscape, the house has strong connections to the outdoors via a rhythm of large openings. The exterior features use of rustic vernacular elements like rafter tails and exposed beams/carpentry for a rough-hewn sensibility that is also reinforced inside. The home is primarily finished throughout with reclaimed natural materials, which provide a neutral backdrop to showcase the owners’ collection of contemporary art and furnishings. The specialty interior detailing achieves the modern Alpine interior desired by the client. Large, well-proportioned windows capture the inside-outside connection and frame expansive views of the mountains and the adjacent meadow.
