TWIN LAKES, CO
TWIN LAKES PASSIVE HOUSE
Located high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, at an elevation of just over 9400 feet above sea level, this residential "retreat" is being designed to provide the owners (and future short term renters) with a truly unique experience. Overlooking the Twin Lakes, with a backdrop of some of Colorado's most breathtaking mountains, this is sure to be space that will lift the spirits.
The siting of the building is done with the intention of minimizing it's impact on the surrounding natural environment by utilizing the existing contours of the topography. This includes a winding driveway that flows down to a "shelf" where the house will rest. Additionally, the home is being designed to Passive House standards, uses biophilic design principles, and will have an ADA compliant guest suite to allow a comfortable stay for all users.
