Project Description

Sited on a 35-acre lot of forest, sagebrush, and mesic upland, the Green Knoll Residence enjoys a sweeping panorama of valley and mountain views. The house's upturned, butterfly rooflines maximize dramatic northern views while deemphasizing verticality. The residence's curving facade exploits the viewshed without prioritizing any single feature of the surrounding wildlands. The curving datum wall of the main house is echoed in the guest house, creating a dynamic yin-yang relationship between the two nearly interlocking crescent shapes. Both structures rely on an honest and revealing design vocabulary, with structural components such as a steel moment frame in the living room left exposed to communicate purpose and function.
