Front Range Lookout
In Brighton, Colorado resting on a hillside is a home overlooking scenic mountain views filled with the wilderness’ natural pleasure. At the center of the 5,529 square foot home, an outlook extends into the sky giving the home a four story light-well of circulation. The back porches scale the home to a quaint size, creating a covered resting space while the patios on the front and back extend out into the landscape.
The home’s changing roof levels and textures explore the facets of the natural essences around it through material choices. Upon entering the home, its heavy timber structure is expressed more vividly, showing off a scissor truss design with a common rafter system. The scissor trusses points like arrows into the sky exaggerating the homes climbing form.
