The architectural controls for Swift Creek estates permitted four architectural styles, one of which was the Prairie form. Within this guideline, Inertia was able to design a house that was both true to the historic style and responsive to the needs of the homeowner.
The entry is central to the front facade and opens onto the stairwell and the main living space. To the left is the kitchen and dining area, and to the right, facing spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, is the owners' suite. The second floor features a gallery, a common area and children's bedrooms.
The house has varying eave depths to allow and disallow light and heat into the house and is entirely insulated with blown-in cellulose insulation.
This design leans heavily on Frank Lloyd Wright's Ward Winfield Willits House in Highland Park, Illinois. For more information about this house, check out this Wikipedia article.
