Centered on views of Pioneer Peak, the residence is designed to be a relaxed, comfortable, rustic mountain home. A cozy, traditional great room defines the public space on the main floor with an open kitchen and dining room. This public space defines the core around which the rest of the home is built.
Public areas are separated from the private, allowing for a mix of uses to occur. This is a common Centre Sky Architecture approach, but it became critical in this design. The client requested that each floor be capable of hosting a family of visitors, however, the client did not want the home to feel broken up or to become to large.
The solution was innovative planning for each level. While each floor has all of the components needed to host a family, it also includes a gathering area which serves the family on that level. Each gathering area is unique in both feel and function, creating a tendency for families to all use the same gathering room for a type of need. For example large gathering will be held in the great room on the main level.
Views were critical in the layout and location of the Hall Residence. The layout of the home is planned to maximize the views in every aspect, ranging from the orientation of the overall home to the planning of the first floor master suite to the layout of the upper level master area.
The aesthetic flair for the residence will be rustic with stone, rusted metal at roof edges, historic wood, accent trims, contrasting aluminum clad windows and non obtrusive lighting.
