Taylor Mountain

Anchored by a double-height glass and wood pavilion, this residence near Castle Rock, Colorado captures dramatic views of distant mountains and adjacent rock formations on a site bounded by ponderosa pine and scrub oak. Carefully proportioned overhangs and a syncopated pattern of cedar columns modulate sun exposure throughout the seasons. Low-maintenance materials: board-formed concrete, weathering steel, and polished concrete floors allow the family to spend their time enjoying the site and their extensive collection of contemporary art.
