Crown Fire house is a 3,000 square foot home sited in a tall ponderosa wood in Los Alamos, New Mexico. The rear of the lot abuts Santa Fe National Forest land. The structure’s contemporary design harmonizes with the tall trees by emphasizing vertical lines. High ceilings and steeply pitched roofs lead the eye upward. The plan’s angled geometry closely follows the deep furrowed topography, anchoring the composition.
For Interior finishes, the architect specified natural materials like wood and stone. Large spans of glass flood spaces with daylight.
Crown Fire House was built by Homes by Holmes of Los Alamos, New Mexico. The abode narrowly survived the terrible Cerro Grande Fire of 2000 which took hundreds of the neighboring structures.
