Modern steel and glass dwelling in the Colorado mountains

Colorado Mountain House-Ando Studio-01-1 Kindesign

This conceptually designed house by Israel-based Ando Studio was planned for Jonathan Monjack Architects, to be built in the Colorado mountains, Colorado. Set into the mountainside and surrounded by nature, the exterior of this home is comprised of steel and glass. Inside you will find a spacious single story floor layout wrapped with floor-to-ceiling glass to take in the captivating views and fill the home with natural light. Minimally designed interiors and simple, clean lines allows for a lifestyle of easy living and helps to not detract from the view of the spectacular surrounding landscape. This would make a great home for entertaining family and friends, with open and spacious interiors that flow from one space to the next.

What We Love: This would be a super cool home to live in, embedded in a mountainside with views of mountains all around you. We can imagine sitting out on the deck soaking up the views and enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. The fire orb is pretty awesome too, a suspended hearth which rotates 360 degrees, setting the ambiance from every angle.

I absolutely LOVE this home! Where is it? How can I build one?

this is a crazy design. first, the r-value of steel is close to zero, so those steel beams will conduct cold temperatures straight into the building envelope. second, there are no private areas in the house! did they even bother to enclose the bathroom(s)???

There is plenty of privacy. The bathroom is in the rocks. Who else will be climbing around outside? not everyone lives in a densely populated area. :)

Unlike traditional wood framing, steel does not warp or expand. It is also better equipped to deal with water damage, since it does not rot and is highly resistant to fungus. Steel is also completely unappealing to termites, carpenter ants and other insects that feed on wood.
