Nestled in the southern Rocky subrange Sangre de Cristo Mountains is a rustic example of drawing on the local environment for architectural guidance. Designed by the Renée del Gaudio Architecture firm, Big Cabin | Little Cabin is a two building structure that takes impression from the organic surroundings.

Naturally weathered cedar siding encase the cabins to make this outport blend into the surrounding forest landscape, while gabled steel roofing takes its cues from original buildings in the area. Exposed beam interiors flaunt the simple yet robust framework of the construction and plywood walls keep materials simple and clean throughout. Lofted spaces make the most of the small floor plan while not sacrificing the intimate feel intended for the family living space. A stout steel grated porch wraps both structures to create unity and provide lounge space.
