Uncompahgre Retreat / Barrett Studio Architects

Uncompahgre Retreat

Located in Montrose, Colorado, Uncompahgre Retreat is a wooden vacation home designed by Barrett Studio Architects.

From the architect: Nestled into the soft cottonwood trees at the edge of the Uncompahgre River, this modest home provides a cool, airy retreat from the oppressive heat of the surrounding high desert.

Its simple form and rustic materials present a humble facade to passersby, but inside a soaring volume and dramatic fixtures lend a sense of airiness. The rear of the home is an invitation to riverside relaxation with a generous patio, which mirrors the jogged roofline.
