This exceptionally designed modern architectural residence sits alongside a mountainous Midwestern terrain. The designing firm, Arch11 was founded in 1993 by James Trewitt and E.J. Meade, and is based in Boulder and Denver Colorado. Arch11 goes beyond seemingly restrictive site parameters to produce the above home on a syncline landscape.
The geological definition of a syncline is a fold or crease in landscape caused by the rise of an ancient sea bed over time. The architects strategized to have the home reflect its site, which is a threshold between the city and nearby mountain park area.
The home’s design embraces its position between nature and man through its sustainable green design qualities. The Syncline House is a self-sustained closed loop house for heating and electricity.
Exterior facades show geometry and earth-toned materials that blend into the landscape. Materials used include stone, wood and concrete. These materials are reflected in the interior with a simple design and modern furniture and appliances.
