Los Angeles-based architectural firm Marmol Radziner has completed the Hidden Vally House, a prefab home located in Moab, Utah. Designed for an active couple as a vacation home, the two bedroom two bathroom 2,500 square foot residence “celebrates nature in its careful siting, emphasis on indoor/outdoor living, and integration of sustainable design elements.”
The design of the home blends indoor and outdoor living spaces, with expansive decks, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an open plan. The main approach winds around the solid, metal-clad side of the home, revealing the opening of the front entry deck with a broad view across the pool to a tall boulder formation. The primary axis of the main house runs along a rock ledge, creating dramatic views out over the landscape. With three full sides of windows and sliding glass doors, the views in the great room proceed from southern (looking out over the rock ledge) to western (red rock boulder formations), and finally to the northern views of snow-capped mountains in the distance. The guest wing with an exercise room opens up to views of the boulder formations on one side and the mountains on the other.
