Sundance Resort Residence

Green and Sustainable Buildings
PROJECT DETAILS:Sundance, UT  Architect: John Carney

Sitting below the majestic peaks of Mt. Timpanogas, this contemporary mountain home served as the pilot project for Founders’ Ridge, a development of private residences in Robert Redford’s Sundance Preserve. Sustainable building methods and technologies were incorporated in order to continue the theme of green building established by Robert Redford at Sundance Resort. Exterior siding in reclaimed barn wood and the lumber used in construction is Forest Stewardship Council certified. Steep slopes and a small, trapezoidal building envelope provided many challenges during construction. Even with this, the project was completed two months ahead of schedule enabling the owner, a renowned film producer, to utilize his resort home during the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
