Sited to take full advantage of the spectacular views on an elevated lot, the design response includes sweeping wings opening up extensive views from every room in the residence. The generous use of stone on the exterior and interior of the home blurs the distinction between outdoors and indoors and connects the home to the land. A sixteen foot wide structurally glazed glass wall further enhances this connection between inside and outside.
Red window frames give a pop of color to the earth tones of the exterior palate of materials. The single story residence has four foot overhangs which protect the generous number of windows around the house. This emphasizes the horizontal lines of the house and naturally anchors it to its prairie setting.
The landscape plan is well groomed next to the house but the majority of the lot was returned to buffalo grass and native wild flowers, which reinforces the Prairie Design of the home.
The interior of the house is organized around a fireplace and inglenook. The interior details and millwork are simple and clean in keeping with the Vernacular Prairie Design. The quality of the craftsmanship clearly displays the pride with which the home was built.
