House in Durango-Interior

House in Durango
Colorado - USA

This was our first project in the US, for a young family living in Durango. They wished for a new, modern home, intimate and at the same time opened toward the outdoors, emphasizing the natural context. The house is envisioned as a versatile space for living and entertaining, dissolving the boundaries between the inside and outside while landscape elements help to weave together the architecture and site. We always start a project by making it a quest for integrity. How do you reconcile the ideal of a family with the absolute independence of the individual? - in this case by getting to know the owners better, learn what they like and dislike, what are their passions and so on, so that this house can become a suitable place for all its members. Natural materials were purposely left slightly raw so that they can react to the natural elements and weather over time to match the changing seasons and match the surroundings. This approach ensured an elegant space without becoming overly refined. The colors of both the exterior materials and interior are inspired by the landscape.
