Curvy in the Cold: Magnificent house in the snow looks modern and inviting and offers wonderful views

15 December, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

Nestled rather perfectly on the edge of a snowy slope, this modern house, designed by Barrett Studio Architects, looks both modern and simplistic with its curved roof and and geometric structure. The mountain captures the sunlight beautifully during the day and gives the owners a full day of warming sunshine, whilst filling the interior with a bright a open atmosphere. In winter, the low sun fills the space with natural light and provides passive solar heating options which are integrated into the curved metal roof. The exterior walls are lined with refractory cement plaster, which provides resistance to a very strong gusty winds, typical of weather in this part of the world. The interior is full of life and colour which is a wonderful contrast from the bright white snow that often surrounds the house. Photos by Maggie Flickinger and David Barrett.
