Pika House

Dunton Hot Springs, CO

At five stories, this private residence responds to the tall surrounding pines. It was built with a very tight footprint and is reminiscent of the nearby logging cabins. The steel-frame structure features floor-to-ceiling glass windows that provide a spectacular tiered view of Dolores Mountain and can be sealed off completely in winter by aluminum louvered shutters.

The kitchen and dining room are on the first floor with living room and library on the second floor. The third and fourth floors combine bedrooms and bathrooms, while a penthouse office suite and a roof deck take advantage of the stunning views from the top floor.
