The Axboe house sits on the north side of the Synderville Basin, Utah, overlooking the greater Park City area and the ski areas beyond. The challenge was to design a home sited naturally, accommodating a family of four, and to create a sense of connection to the mountain environment.

Working tightly with the clients, who expertly handled the interior finishing and design, we came up with three masses arranged and oriented to create transitional spaces between. Each mass houses either private or public functions, and thus its ceiling heights and proportions mimic that methodology, allowing more airy light-filled spaces in the living and dining while pulling down to more human relationships in the private bed and bathrooms.

Aesthetically, the Axboe house is perceived as a looking box to the mountain ranges beyond, tapering down its massing to allow for ample outdoor decks and patios that transition to the adjacent spaces. In tune with our firm’s ethos, the home’s energy performance is helped with double stud wall construction, triple pane European windows, orientation and massing per passive solar methods, and an airtight barrier.
