Description:

The Lodgepole Circle Residence is nestled in the trees of Evergreen, Colorado, directly south of the majestic Evergreen Mountain from which the Town gets its name. Embracing its surroundings, the site offers breathtaking panoramic views of the picturesque landscape. Drawing inspiration from the iconic East Watch House, also designed by F9 Productions, this 3,500 square foot custom home embodies a harmonious blend of modern architecture and natural elements.

Driven by a desire for spaciousness and connectivity with nature, the clients envisioned a home adorned with large floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the stunning mountain vistas and provide an abundance of natural light. Their aspiration for an open-concept kitchen, living, and dining area resonated with their inclination towards seamless integration and unobstructed views. The expansive deck serves as a tranquil retreat, offering a vantage point to savor the surrounding beauty.

The structure itself predominantly features wood-framed construction, accentuated by elements of concrete masonry units in the garage area and a strategic use of structural steel elements. This blend of materials enhances structural integrity while contributing to the aesthetic appeal of the residence.

The design draws parallels to the energy-efficient principles of the East Watch House, namely the incorporation of extensive glass, that is oriented south in order to maximize solar gain during the winter months. The large roof overhangs then protect the house from heavy snowfall and provide shade from the high summer sun.

The main floor hosts three bedrooms, each thoughtfully positioned to offer serene views and convenient access to the garage. The clients’ appreciation for seamless flow is realized through a clear path from the entrance to the main deck.

The basement anticipates future expansion with a versatile bedroom and a dedicated family hangout space, providing opportunities for relaxation and recreation in a cozy atmosphere.

In summary, the Lodgepole Circle Residence epitomizes a modern interpretation of mountain living, where architectural elegance converges with natural beauty to create a sanctuary that celebrates the essence of Evergreen, Colorado.
