Sample text

The two main forms of the house are separated by a ‘canyon’ designed to allow for both vertical and horizontal ventilation. The corridor is naturally illuminated via skylights and serves to differentiate between major areas of the residence. Photography Paul Richer (Richer Images) Materials such as architectural concrete and Corten steel cladding were selected for the exterior because they require almost no routine maintenance and enhance the modern aesthetic of the house. The sophistication of the exterior is maintained in the interior finishes and details, combining to form a modern residential icon for Salt Lake City.

The lower level contains a garage, storage space and an entrance foyer. All public areas are located on the main level – including the living–dining areas, kitchen and a cantilevered music room – and can be configured to create one large open space. The master bedroom, which the client requested be contained on this level, maintains a physical separation from the public areas while accessing the most favorable views. These western views are central to the layout of the main level, indicated by the large exterior balcony near the living area.

Photography Steve Back The use of the large void to connect the kitchen, formal dining and living areas gives harmony to once disparate rooms. Light and the fine control of it further enhances the mezzanine, ensuring these spaces are inviting and useable at all times of the day. The interior is kept neutral, with punches of colour used to add personality and character. All over the house the evocative contrast of intense textural materials is a striking design feature. Rough sandstone plays off against smooth concrete; timber screens contrast with lush plants; jewel-coloured tiles arranged in an Islamic fan pattern break up blocks of austere Calacatta marble.
