Mammoth Mountain Retreat
A gently sloping, heavily wooded three-quarter-acre parcel with a clearing for a buildable area is the site for a tall, compact four-level home. Being nestled in the trees reduces the footprint and maintains natural drainage. The vertical form creates an opportunity for convection for natural cooling and heating, exceeding sustainable goals through the innovative use of reclaimed materials. An open plan serves as an active home for family and friends to gather.
