castle pines residence

set atop a prominent ridge and visually exposed to the valley below, the underutilized site provided the client with the opportunity to create spaces for entertaining, exercise and taking in the front range views. 

the client is a prominent business person who entertains frequently but also wanted a private sanctuary for relaxation and exercise. entertainment space needed to include large and intimate spaces to accommodate parties of all sizes. the hardscape and gardens needed to be beautiful and utilitarian, but also needed to look like they were meant to be there, seamlessly blending into the mountainside. finally, the views, from inside and outside the house, couldn’t be compromised.
