ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN | BY | October 20, 2017

Grab your favorite fall beverage, and celebrate the changing weather with this roundup of homes that celebrates the best part of the season.

WALKING IN A WOODED WONDERLAND

Fall Foliage

“The landscape is a modern-day interpretation of a forest floor; it blends the character of the natural environment with the contemporary architecture,” says the project’s landscape architect, Roland Crighton of Forma Design Partners. “The lawn engages the riverbank and sets the scene for dramatic views of the water.” (Tour the home)

CALI CABANA

Fall Foliage

Sited far from the main house, the pavilion takes advantage of the “borrowed landscape” of neighboring grapevines. (Tour the home)

NATURAL WONDER

Fall Foliage

The contemporary abode is clad with durable siding by James Hardie Building Products and has a galvanized standing-seam metal roof from Red Eagle Roofing. The grounds were designed by landscape architect Gyles Thornely and installed by Rocky Mountain Gardens. (Tour the home)

SERENITY NOW

Fall Foliage

An existing fountain was relocated from the pool area to the front entry. Here, a limestone patio was added to shape a new courtyard defined by a hedge of boxwood beauty. A grouping of purple plum trees adds color and shade to the space. The owner designed his own landscape, which was installed by V&M Landscaping. (Tour the home)

MOUNTAIN MAJESTY

“We wanted to see how things changed during the year. In wintertime, it’s pure hot white all around you. In the fall, there’s bright yellow everywhere, and in the spring and summer, there’s the most beautiful green.” The surrounding environment is especially prominent, given the home’s remote siting. “The house is the last one on a road that dead-ends into a mountain where a mine used to be,” interior designer Brandon Quattrone says. “You can’t go any farther.” (Tour the home)

CONTEMPORARY CRAFT

Fall Foliage

In the town of Mountain Village, this residence sheds new light on the local ranch vernacular by interpreting regional forms and indigenous materials in a modern way. Here, it’s contemporary exterior. (Tour the home)

LOUNGING POOLSIDE

Fall Foliage

The expanded backyard area offers a further respite, with its new patios, infinity-edge pool, outdoor dining pavilion, and poured-concrete seating area complete with fire pit. (Tour the home)

NATURAL AND NEUTRAL

Fall Foliage

The architects designed layered entries, from parking to gate to courtyard. Corten steel panels make up a massive sliding front door that’ s suspended from an iron curtain-like rod. (Tour the home)

MELLOW YELLOW

Fall Foliage

The architects, keeping in mind the steep hillside site and the strict height limits that came along with it, interpreted that description by designing a minimalist structure that appears to be carved into the mountain on one side and float like a tree house on the other. (Tour the home)

POP OF FALL

Fall Foliage

Three steel shipping containers–with Marvin windows and doors–were combined to build a guesthouse for visitors. The courtyard accommodates a small pool by Bontrager Pools. The architect collaborated with Green Mansions in New Buffalo, Michigan, on the landscape. (Tour the home)

ART WALK

Fall Foliage

The path leading up to John Henry’s blue ‘Chevron’ sculpture is made of an 18th-century sidewalk from a town in Maine. (Tour the home)

LANDSCAPE LUXURY

Fall Foliage

Grasses including feather reed, big bluestem and tufted hair dot the property. The low-slung master suite is tucked behind the screened porch, which buffers it from the public side of the house. (Tour the home)
