Roaring Fork

The conceptual idea for the Roaring Fork house is to enhance the uniqueness of the environment by creating a collection of forms that directly relate to the specific site features.  These distinct components are rationally organized by the the foliage, topography, views and climate specific to the place.

The parti for the project is based on a clustered organization of the main program elements.  Each component is organized around a specific view or natural site feature  Clustered organizations rely on physical proximity to relate spaces to one another.  Because it is not based on rigid geometry, this type of organization  is flexible to relate to individual elements of an environment.  The significance of each space is articulated by its size, form and orientation.  Each piece of the clustered organization helps create a unique sense of place.
