MELVINA HILL RESIDENCE
Gold Hill, Colorado • 2,390 sq ft
Nestled into a small town west of Boulder, this area is rich in nature and peaceful. It is a primed canvas for this mountain residence and artist’s studio. The intent for this home was to craft a modern simplicity while acknowledging the earth from which it was born and to provide for a communal experience with nature. Tucked into a cascading site, the house and studio both rise from the earth clad in board-formed concrete and natural wood siding. Metal siding and roof surge up to frame out the view across the valley in floor-to-ceiling windows. Positioned to shelter from harsh winter winds and open to the summer breeze, each structure provides a patio that reaches out into the view, allowing the inhabitant to flow from interior to exterior with ease and break down the barrier between themselves and the natural world.
