This week, we present you the beautiful Syncline House.
The Syncline House is a project by Arch11, a firm founded in 1993 by James Trewitt and E.J. Meade, which gained regional recognition for projects ranging from exceptional residences to institutional planning, mixed use development and product design. Situated at the fold between the Rocky Mountain foothills and the Great Plains, the house mediates horizons and peaks, city and alpine meadows. Conceived as a frame for viewing the landscape, arch 11 meticulously modeled the residence within the site to insure that planes of glass capture ridgetop views while respecting the city’s height restrictions. Built with innovative renewable energy systems and materials crafted to last centuries, the house is a model of cutting-edge sustainable design and attains a LEED gold certification.
This house is really beautiful and unique. The materials choice, the huge internal spaces and the minimal interiors give the place a cozy and modern look. The whole place is astonishing...it makes me want to live there!
Check out Arch11 website for further details about their projects. See you next time. :)
