Harsh and rocky landscapes are not perfect for building family houses on but that does not mean it is not possible to do so. In reality, again and again architects can impress us with all the innovative options they find to challenging issues and challenging scenarios. The Owl Creek house from Snowmass, Colorado is an inspiration for us all. This is a project developed by Skylab studio in 2015. The house blends into the landscape in a really unique way which has a great deal to do with its corten steel exterior shell.
Perched on the hillside, the home offers panoramic views of the neighboring mountain. Huge windows and glazed surfaces open the chambers and permit natural lighting to dash in but even with that the home does not really look exposed in the exterior. The protective corten steel casing keeps a contained and romantic appearance. So far as the interior is concerned, the house involves a run of lodge-like temperate regions all clustered together in the middle. A cozy fireplace seating area, a spacious kitchen with a huge bar and many nooks make this house feel quite comfy and welcoming. This is a common home for 2 families so the personal spaces are split into two limbs.
