In the wildness of Elkins Meadow, Colorado, USA, the Reed Residence rises as a contemporary construction, with strong rustic influences and a high tendency of being eco friendly with the environment. The family of four that owns the house designed by Robert Hawkins Architects in collaboration with Gerber Berend Design Build is lucky to consume in a year what the solar panels placed on the roof produce.
But apart from the “Net-Zero” feature, the residence resembles to the wild vegetation surrounding. Made mostly of wood and keeping the same pattern in the interior with the finishing and furnishings, Reed house is a welcoming and cozy place. You cannot decide which part of it you love the most, because every room has its own special vibe.
Earthy color pallet is not boring and it is not depressing. The light comes in through the large windows with wood frames and that’s just another plus for the eco life the family living here adopted.
