As a vacation retreat in a Colorado ski area an important design objective was to provide indoor living spaces that would enable the inhabitants to visually engage the out-of-doors as an ever-present component of the environment in which they were situated.

The organization of the house while requiring maximum transparency also required the provision of opaque surfaces to ensure privacy from without and within and to simultaneously provide a sense of being sheltered from the elements.
