Local architect featured in ‘Mountain Living’ magazine

VAIL, Colorado – A home designed by local architecture firm K.H. Webb Architects is featured in the March/April edition of “Mountain Living Magazine.”

“It was a great accomplishment to be able to create a design so efficient within a large footprint that the the home’s supplemental air-conditioning system has yet to be used,” said Kyle Webb, principal of K.H Webb. “Team member Stacey Goehring and I are proud that Mountain Living has chosen to feature this design in their most recent issue.”

The homeowners selected reclaimed spruce siding, standing-dead timbers, zinc paneling, concrete and Colorado sandstone, all assembled under a zinc roof.

To control the amount of heat lost and gained through the home’s floor-to-ceiling windows, Webb specified windows that are treated with a special sun-modulating coating. The walls are super-insulated, and there’s extensive cross-ventilation for natural cooling. To meet the goal of acessibility all the main living areas are contained on one level and doorjambs were eliminated, making it easy for wheelchair and cane users to go from inside to out.
