New Zealand Rustic
Kinloch, New Zealand

Situated on top of a hill that overlooks both a recreational reserve and a picturesque lake, the occupants of this residence don’t have to look far to find nature. Custom architectural details such as the steel cross on the exterior give a lightness to the seemingly heavy timber structure. Two courtyards drive this project into multiple wings that gradually step up the grade. A grand living space and kitchen capture views from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and are grounded by elements of natural stone and warm woods. A main suite is complemented by a serene pond and limitless views. You can walk through the interior to the exterior seamlessly and find another wing of the house. A “bothy” as the New Zealanders call it or a mother-in-law apartment in American terms stands as a staple portion of the house. The bothy offers comfortable living quarters and a unique bar situated at the top of the tower that gazes over the land. Ultimately this residence offers a dichotomy to the New Zealand norm without sacrificing the landscape and views that make it so unique.

The Ridge at Telluride
Telluride, CO

The Ridge at Telluride community is accessible only via gondola, making this home an ideal mountain retreat unlikely to be found anywhere else in the United States. The lot is perched off the San Sophia overlook, offering stunning views of the rugged San Juan Mountain range from the moment you enter. At 10,500 feet above sea level, the views are quite literally breathtaking. Dramatic, gabled ceilings throughout the home mirror the surrounding mountain peaks, while the exposed steel and timber structure nod to the city’s mining heritage. An interior palette of warm wood and natural stone invoke a feeling of tranquility that are sure to soothe and comfort visitors.

Directly across from Garden of the Gods National Park, this modern home is perched on a mesa that features sweeping views of the park and mountains beyond. The home is anchored by an enclosed front courtyard that creates a formal quality to the street facing entrance. The home then spreads toward the stunning vistas with multiple outdoor sanctuary spaces featuring water features, native plantings, and unmatched scenic views.
