This modern 3000 sq. ft. home was built on a very small empty lot in Salt Lake City's very desirable historical Marmalade district. I had the pleasure of being part of the design team from conception of the home design and layout all the way through the custom interior details, furnishing and accessorizing.
The goal was to create a simple home that was also sophisticated. A reflection of my client's lifestyle and love for modernism. The home has 3 levels, each devoted to a very different purpose. Main level is for entertaining and gathering. Basement for intimate family time. And the second level, a master retreat. It is important that when designing a home that you create a flow or a cohesiveness between the spaces, even if they serve different functions.
Sustainable and thermally efficient design elements include: modest square footage, hydronic radiant heating in the concrete floors on all levels, triple pane walnut wood windows and exterior doors, an operable skylight over the stairs to provide passive cooling (air movement), thick double-stud walls to allow greater insulation, a vegetated/ planted roof on the garage, permeable paving at the sunken courtyard and driveway surfaces.
