MOUNTAIN FUNG SHUI
Japanese Contemporary - Rendezvous - Fraser, Colorado
This 3,400 SF home was designed for a couple who are successful business owners and are passionate about Japanese design. Working with the Rendezvous Design Review Board, we created a house that incorporated their desires and followed the design guidelines of the Rendezvous Development.
Traditional Japanese houses grew over time, with portions added for each generation. This house was broken down into three pavilions; the main house, the master bedroom suite and the garage to give this additive appearance. Bridges link the three pavilions with site drainage flowing under the bridges. The great room is defined by pegged timber trusses of oriental design, wood batten exposed joists and the wood ceiling. The woodwork throughout the house is mahogany and the floors are a black Chinese limestone. The credit for the interiors goes to the homeowner, who is also an interior designer.
The front hall closet was designed to look like a Japanese chest. The main stair is hung and cantilevered off the wall is mahogany. There are many one of a kind details throughout the house. The downstairs contains a family room, an office, laundry room and a guest bedroom suite with a Japanese soaking tub.
