Lipsey House

-A A +A
1982, William Lipsey. 2310 Juniper Hills Dr.

This local architect's version of an appropriate house for the Rockies is deliberately small and unassuming, conserving land, materials, and energy. The house is enlarged by clever interior and window design. Its solar energy system does not detract from the handmade look of western ranch vernacular. Lipsey says he strove to “avoid high art pretensions” but admits that unpretentiousness could become a pretension in itself.
