The Stein Eriksen Residence’s design is based on brevity. Minimal ornamentation with an emphasis on natural, native materials. Recycled wood siding that has been nylon brushed to minimize variations in patina. The reclaimed wood was selected to provide a low maintenance exterior which would blend into its’ environment. The Ibex natural stone, native to the Rocky Mountain, was selected for its’ color variations that enhance the wood siding and its’ dry stack rustic lay. Its high density and low water absorption rate will ensure that the finish on these structures are not only beautiful but very durable. Steel, wide flange beams and timbers provide the modern/mountain detailing that anchors the design to its’ mountain environment while low-pitched, grey, metal, standing seam roofs combined with flat single-ply roofing create the transitional forms of modern and lodge.
Stein Eriksen Home 1 is the model home for 15 semi-custom residences combined with 39 stacked flat condominiums and amenities. Sited on a ridge top with panoramic views to Deer Valley, Park City and the Snyderville Basin, it is one of the last great development opportunities in the heart of the resort. This particular home was very challenging due to a small footprint, a steep climb from the road to the adjoining ski trail and severe height restrictions. So the design became a response to these challenges, plus overcoming the objections of a 4-story home. We decided to celebrate the height, with the stairs becoming a major design feature from the street. As you access the various floors, the view becomes more impressive and when you reach the 3rd floor, with its’ open living space, you are met with this massive view of the Wasatch Mountains and the upper ski runs.
Success was based on maximizing views and light in every space. The winter months can be quite grey, yet maximized windows, light interior colors, and modern detailing have created a dynamic living space.
The break from the typical mountain lodge to a transitional mountain modern has been a huge success in this Park City market. Buyers have expressed their attraction to a more sophisticated design yet still feeling comfortable on the mountain.
