Box House in Boulder, Colorado by Studio H:T Architect (designed using Autodesk Revit)
April 19th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Steep site, wildfire prone area, prominent location, compelling views. A concrete ribbon carves the hillside to create space for the boxes. The garage and main level push into the earth while the studio and master float above. A spatial slot organizes procession from the northern car-park to the southern courtyard. Courtyards form introverted space that perceptually enlarge the interior. Roof decks are extroverted, capitalizing on views. The dialog between grounded and floating permeates the design in materiality and attachment.
The house form, space, and materiality are direct responses to the challenges of the site in the context of the client program.
