Mine-Bending

Mine-Bending Residence
Mountain Village, CO

Typically at elevations of 10,200 feet in the Telluride region of Colorado, the only significant buildings were the mining structures. The clients for this house wished to embrace this architectural heritage with a contemporary flair. The forms were simple gables and attached sheds that spiraled around a central tower, reaching for the views. The materials, both inside and out, were common and consisted of glass, rusted steel trusses, heavy timbers, recycled barn wood, and stone. The design is modern, yet warm in its openness, with radius walls of rusted steel and plaster that penetrate the common spaces and gently lead toward the private areas.
