I House by Saunders Architecture at 38 Carraig Ridge is oriented towards the west views along a bench on the site. The 2.95 acre lot ranges in elevation from 1,337 to 1,316 metres, falling to the west. The I House is situated among mature spruce trees framing views of Devil’s Head Mountain in the distance with a pond nearby, just beyond the walking trial at the west edge of the lot. The living spaces and second bedroom face west, while the master bedroom faces south. The I House uses the slope of the site to allow a south-facing third bedroom in the lower level, while maintaining a low profile from the drive. Sited on 650 acres of stunning landscape made up of rolling hills, forests, meadows, and ponds and framed by the mountains; while ideally positioned midway between Banff and Calgary. Over 500 acres of this beautiful wilderness is preserved for the owners while CR becomes a new centre for innovative contemporary architecture.
