AB House is targeted as a certified Passive House Plus and is located off grid in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The 1750 square foot floor plan is conceived as a flexible space, able to accommodate a family of four comfortably or allow a couple to stretch out with a flexible living and working space.
The approach to the home meanders through the forest, arriving at a rock outcropping and bridge transversing over a subdued steel exterior. Descending to the south the envelope softens with cork siding a series of large windows.
Our unique foundation and framing system allows for a complex relationship with the terrain but maintains a simple and integrated insulation and air tightness layer without foam products.
The project is built without foam insulation and minimizes carbon-intensive materials.
