Very cool, these concrete tiles look normal when dry and cool, but add water (snow) or get it warmed up and it shows some secrets.... http://dornob.com/innovative-concrete-shows-secret-patterns-when-wet-hot/

Occupying a clearing in a serene Sierra Mountains pine forest, this single family residence brings the outdoors in with transparent walls and patio access from almost every room. A series of stone wedges separating the spaces provide platforms to capture the distant views. The exposed timber structure echoes the surrounding forest while supporting dynamic, protective arched roof forms.

Pa Gomo featured on National Television New Years Day

If you happen to have over-served yourself on New Year’s Eve and need a break from the bowl games RKD Architects has just the solution for you. Of course, if the powder is just calling too much; set your Tevo. HGTV is featuring Pa Gomo, designed by RKD Architects in Greyhead just outside of Telluride on their “Million Dollar Rooms” series. The show is airing on January 1st at 11:00 am and again at noon and finally at 11:00 on the 2nd

“I am interested to see what this show look’s like” says Jack Snow AIA of RKD Architects, who was interviewed this past summer for the show. “I was featured on a documentary that aired weekly for two years in Minnesota, so being on TV is not a big deal, but this was eight hours of interviews and 12 hours of filming all of which has been edited down to a five or six minute segment. Who knows what they will put together.”

The “Million Dollar Rooms” show does not specifically focus on for sale projects, but currently Pa Gomo is listed by Steve Catsman steve@catsman.com or check out the Pa Gomo website at www.pagomotelluride.com

Pa Gomo has been published numerous times regionally and nationally and it has graced the cover of quite a few magazines, but this is its first appearance on national television. “Pa Gomo” which in the Chinyanga southern African language means “on the mountain” is built of site-harvested stone high on the flank of Hawn Mountain. It has been called a “peaceful and balanced piece of art”. It is an assembly of angled stone forms, sloped glass and curved copper roofs with a seamless connection to the environment and the pond and stream that anchor the design. It is the central living space: the kitchen, living and dining area that the show features. “The fact that we designed all the furniture in the home was quite a topic of discussion in the interviews” says Snow” as was the indoor/outdoor feel of the spaces, but I will just have to wait and see what the editor chose to make part of the program”.

RKD was founded in Vail in 1990 by Jack Snow and his wife Sally Brainerd. But recently they have designed a number of homes in Telluride as well as projects as far east as Minnesota and through out the west Their marvelous, truly unique creations blend environmentally friendly concepts with cutting edge design work.

In October of 2008 Architecture Digest (AD) featured an RKD project as part of their “Home’s from the World’s Top Architects feature story.” AD, the top shelter magazine in the world, called RKD’s best known pieces as “…hugely sculptural places of stone on the unlimited space of great ranches,” “It is great that people in the national and regional markets are starting to notice and appreciate what we do,” says Snow.

Cheap, transportable and recyclable, Adam Kalkin's container homes may be the next wave of prefab.
