EPARD/PORSCH HOUSE

This house expresses the interests and lives of our clients as well as our own continuing interest in experimentation in form, order and materials. Our clients wanted a tall house to occupy a hilltop location with multiple layers of up/down and in/out spaces not unlike the farms they both grew up on in western Kansas. We all wanted a house that was environmentally sensible with thick insulated walls, controlled apertures and the optimum in passive cooling and heating. We threaded the building in among a group of established trees that surrounded a former residence on the site. The outside skin is Kansas limestone. The tower links the public and private realms and has a movable cover to facilitate the use of the couple’s telescope.
