Sited high on a hillside looking out onto the Snowmass Mountains, the Owl Creek House is a multi-family retreat in Colorado. The dwelling was designed to connect people to the landscape and also to each other. Its triangular frame is clad in corten steel and rock, a pallet that blends into the mountainous setting. Internally, a rugged mix of natural materials continues throughout, complementing the scenery displayed by expansive glazed panels. Its two levels offer five bedrooms and are filled with lodge-like gathering areas that draw individuals together. The interior seamlessly flows to the outdoors where a series of terraces surround the exterior, including a triangular deck and spa that cantilevers out towards the mountains in the distance.
