Mertz

The house placement is in a clearing along a modest ridge that allows dramatic views to the Sangre de Christo Mountains to the east, Ortiz and Sandia Mountains to the south and the Jemez Mountains to the west. Six primary massings are arranged along a central spine oriented north/south.

The west side of the spine has three massings accommodating the garage, entry and three en-suite guest bedrooms. On the east side of the spine is the great room, den and master bedroom suite. Each massing is separated by a glazed-in ramp to allow the house to step down with the natural topography of the ridge.

The home has a material palette consisting of stucco, stained Douglas fir beams, stone veneer, standing seam metal roof metal roofs and dark gray cold rolled steel fascias.

Various functions of the home are pulled apart to allow the landscape to intertwine with the architecture, while orienting the rooms to the elevated mountain views.
