Smith Residence

The Smith Residence took advantage of a remarkable location with broad vistas. However, because of its site on an open field adjacent to conservation properties, Pitkin County required that it be located such that it could not be seen from the adjacent county road. Taking advantage of site topography and a willing owner, the existing hayfield was raised to obscure the view of the residence while providing a very desirable site for the residence. The house was designed by Charles Cunniffe Architects, and the rather complex approval process and site design was provided by SCA. This project represents a successful and unique response to approval constraints imposed by local governments, something SCA has become adept in addressing.
