The dining area opens onto an outdoor deck by way of a 14-foot-tall glass garage door. The home was sited to take advantage of the sun. “We angled the house not only for the views, but for passive solar gain during the colder months,” says Boulder, Colorado, architect Dominique Gettliffe, who designed the home. “During the winter solstice, the sun’s light fills the entire house all the way up the steps to the back bedrooms.”Read more about siting a home to conserve energy

The dining area opens onto an outdoor deck via a 14-foot-tall glass garage door, which is protected by a broad overhang balanced on slim (4-inch) angled steel columns. The built-in Baltic birch plywood sofa allows family and friends a front-row seat to watch storms roll in or to see sunsets and stargaze. “We angled the house not only for the views, but for passive solar gain during the colder months,” Gettliffe says. “During the winter solstice, the sun’s light fills the entire house all the way up the steps to the back bedrooms.” Glass garage door: Raynor; sofa fabrics: Kravet and Norbar Fabrics
