Located in the prestigious neighborhood of Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, this modern-rustic Forest House is an understated yet visually interesting home that sits quietly among and in harmony with the trees. The owner’s desire to “live amongst the trees” inspired the design of this home with a roof line that starts low as you enter from the street and lifts your eyes up into the trees. A monumental living room is concealed among the towering forest trees and enable the occupants to feel as if they were camping in the treetops.
To further this relationship with the forest, the home is placed down the hill amongst the trees where it takes advantage of the steep drop-off of the rock outcropping at the center of the lot allowing the lower level to cascade down a full level. This stacked cascading configuration has the added advantage of minimizing the homes footprint leaving more room for the surrounding trees to thrive.
