Oblio House by Edward Fitzgerald Architects:

“Oblio Residence in Cedar Crest, New Mexico is a research of intersection between circulation and topography.

Developed on a steep hill, the design organizes the house on 2 ranges that phase down the web site to the primary residing spaces that open onto a terrace.

Entrance is from the upper degree, passing in amongst 2 walls acting as a curtain between 2 worlds. Once inside, circulation doubles back in the opposite course revealing views of the personal organic sanctuary and accessing the guest quarters, examine loft and bathroom.

The reduced level is accessed by stairs that are aligned on axis with South Mountain.

This axis intersects the orthogonal geometry of the lower living spot. The reduce level consists of: open residing / dining / kitchen spot utility and master bedroom suite. These regions open onto a terrace that steps down into the organic private landscape that surrounds the home.

The residence is constructed of polished concrete floors, insulated concrete types (ICF), and recycled wood stud framing. Exterior finishes are stucco and rusted metal roof and wall panels.

The home utilizes passive solar photovoltaic and hot water roof panels for electricity and in-floor heating. Rain water is collected into underground cisterns for landscape irrigation.”
