Sprawling contemporary homes aren’t always found in the most remote of locations, but this amazing residence by Voorsanger Architects in the Western part of the United States is a testament to breathtaking views, and a huge architectural floor plan.
Sticking with a very contemporary structure and a more minimalist approach to the interior, the firm’s main goals were to create a sustainable home in such a fragile environment. Spanning over 240 feet in length, the space is sectioned off between private and public areas. Interior walls and ceilings are covered in walnut wood while the exterior is a protective finish of stucco and sandstone. The home’s energy sources are completely independent in order for it to function in freezing Winter temperatures and hot Summer months without harvesting any of Earth’s fossil fuels.
