Mountain House (house 1) is a proposal for a house in Utah that is best characterized by the manipulation of three features; the barrel vault, the roof scupper, and the [inverted] bay window. Intersecting barrel vaults where the cabin meets the ground minimize the cabin’s physical footprint in the landscape while creating a covered outdoor “porch” with a central fire place for year-round use. Four exaggerated scuppers, one on each side of the house, are manipulated to be both roof and downspout.
