Saddled between two peaks…

Fermenting curtains rising to the seasons, fire and sun, water and leaves…

Crashing out to the cornucopia of the beginnings…

West Virginia Home

“The setting for this house is a reminder of duality with it’s view of the twin peaks across the valley. This is the context that I want this house to capture. I want it to be simple, but complex technically and artistically. I want it to be comfortable and challenging at the same time. I want it to keep me safe from nature but make me feel part of nature. And ultimately, I want it to make me aware of these layers and contradictions so that I can sit and contemplate all that on long winter nights… this idea of opposites is not really what I am trying to describe. It is more still waters running deep“, Larry Bruneel 9-12-08.

The home is much like an ipod. As one approaches it is at once a surreal object that stands like a wall, but beckons and then with the slightest movement opens and invites one in. The simple path divides the lower level of auto from the above dwelling place. The home has bridges all in glass to separate time and echoes. Always crossing and rising with the sun. The southern side is packed with solar streams all winter and dwindles into shade with silver fins in summer’s heat. The roof is terrace of never-ending vistas that make one wonder why live inside at all. Travis Price Architect
