The design of this new home in the old village at Sugar Bowl is entirely a product of its dramatic environment. Perched on a concrete plinth that lifts the house above the tall winter snow-pack, a solid, cedar-clad volume houses sleeping areas, boot room, and service spaces. Above, a variety of living spaces, each enjoying mountain views, are gathered under a simple, bent planar roof form. The exaggerated geometry of the openings frame views of horizontal snow drifts and vertical stands of pine trees.
