We were approached by a previous client of ours, who had purchased the end unit in a yet-to-be-constructed row of ten town houses on Powder Mountain. Their unit was initially conceived as a hinged piece of a larger fractured landscape.
Conceived as a building with a fractured roof, mimicking a sheet of ice, we looked to metaphors of the snow covered terrain to inform the design. The fractured roof line opens up a skylight above. The slatted front facade reflects the density of the Aspen grove behind the site. Contrasting the fabric of the front facade, the rear all glass facade allows internal views to expand outward into the western mountains beyond.
When the new owners of the adjacent properties turned to the developers to create their units, OMAS:WORKS withdrew from the process in order to aid in our client's engagement with the organizers.
