To many, a home in the mountains is seen as the perfect place to live. Since they tend to be isolated, mountain residences can provide peace from the frenetic pace of the cities. They’re also elevated over the surrounding landscape, allowing their owners to experience spectacular views that can be found nowhere else daily. These characteristics, along with the experiences and atmosphere that mountain living offers, make mountain homes well-suited to people who prefer private and peaceful surroundings.
But, mountain living should no longer be equated with log cabins or wood-burning stoves. Homes in mountainous regions have transformed, and nothing proves this better than the House in a Mountain Meadow – an excellent example of how the team at Gelotte Hommas can adapt a home to its surroundings without compromising on the quality of life for its intended occupants.
The House in a Mountain Meadow sits low to the ground, and was designed with intriguing mix of the old and the modern as represented by the unique combination of wood and concrete – allowing the House in a Mountain Meadow to make an impression without detracting from the nature and the views that surround it.
Though the House in a Mountain Meadow could afford to sprawl due to the nature and size of the lot, its clever use of positioning to create smaller and more intimidate settings enforces the feeling of coziness that is so essential to the home. This “warmth” is strengthened by the use of neutral colors and a dedication throughout the home to complement the environment with architectural design.
