Loveland house, architecture, Front Range

This is an image of on-going process on a really interesting project, a departure from large, mountain houses.  This is a small, simple house centered around a beautiful existing ash tree on a property south of Loveland, Colorado.  Using the tree as the organizing center, the house arrays itself around a courtyard, using the tree as the barometer of the seasons, providing shade in the summer, revealing mountain views in the winter.
