Monk House, Boulder, Colorado property
“Chakra House” is a home on the western edge of Boulder, Colorado, USA, built in a western variation of Japanese vernacular style. Built c. 1978 for Chögyam Trungpa – a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master. Trungpa’s presence in Boulder, and the establishment there of the ‘international headquarters’ of his institution, had a great impact on the mythology and reputation of Boulder in the national (and perhaps world) consciousness.

Pinnacle Court Residence, Carbondale
The client for the Pinnacle Court project, a sculpture artist, and his wife came to J.P.A. only wanting a studio next to their home. During the design process it grew to having a living space above the studio, which grew to having a small house attached to the studio forming a compound. At this point it became clear to the client; the project was outgrowing the neighborhood.

Bear Mountain House
Aerosmith had not seen this house when they wrote the song “Livin’ on the Edge” in the 1970s since it was built in 2000, but if they had, it would have taken their inspiration to whole new levels. Unique in its design and definitely unique in its location, it would have won more than a Grammy or Viewers’ Choice award.
