Emigration Canyon Residence by Sparano + Mooney Architecture
by Ted Savage / September 12, 2011
Via @ArchDaily, a home for a family with young children, in Emigration Canyon above Salt Lake City, Utah, is centered around a "great room that opens to the canyon with a 30 foot operable wall, to transform the space into an outdoor room."


Sustainable features run throughout. "Natural light is brought into the house with solatube skylights and heat is provided through an energy-efficient in-floor radiant heating system. The design required minimum excavation of the site and allowed for the retention of much of the native oaks on site. Water use is minimized with dual-flush toilets and a rainwater capture system for irrigation of the gardens."

"The warm colors of cor-ten steel cladding combine with a board-formed wood textured concrete and glass for a contextual, low-maintenance and modern material palette. The house has the first LEED-H Silver certification in the state." More at Sparano + Mooney Architecture. Photos: Dustin Aksland.
