4040 Wakefield Drive Colorado Springs, CO 80906
The Canopy House is to be perched in the foothills of Colo Spgs, and because of its unique design, offers panoramic views of both the Cheyenne Mountain range and the downtown region. The house will have a three-car garage, 4 bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths, with upper and lower levels carefully nestled into the sloping site. Though it has a large expanse of glass to create a visual relationship between indoor and outdoor, much of the glass area is shaded by the canopy and other building masses as an energy conservation measure. A fully-glazed & dramatically cantilevered main-level kitchen, dining, & living room spaces afford expansive views of Downtown, contrasted by more private & subtle view of Cheyenne Mountain from the master bedroom suite & the guest room/office. The lower level contains two bedrooms & a shared jack-&-jill bath coupled with a family & entertainment room that opens onto private patio area. the prominent canopy that spans the main house, is not only designed to shade the glass, but also cleverly hides a photovoltaic system that works to reduce its energy footprint & lower monthly utility bills. also partially covered with phenolic panels, themselves a high-tech ‘rain-screen’ that not only provides a maintenance-free & fire-resistant barrier, but also acts as a heat-sink in dissipating heat gain. innovations that have become keynotes of a ‘design, specifically those of ‘Component Design Strategies’ which borrows proven processes from industrial & automotive industries to provide a highly-performative, highly-sustainable, & highly-engaging work of architecture. Many parts of the house, such as the dramatic steel & glass bridge that composes the main house, are produced under the precise conditions of a steel shop rather than loosely constructed on site.
