We are pleased to present the Hailey Residence, a contemporary home design by Gravitas, a design firm located in Boise, Idaho.
Founded in 2001, Gravitas has been designing custom homes across the entire United States for well over a decade. They’ve crafted in every realm, from low desert to mountainside climes. The Gravitas team is made up of hardworking, talented designers with architectural degrees, combining many years of custom commercial and residential designs.
They have created homes in 34 states, plus projects in China, Poland, Turkey, Norway, Canada, and Japan.
The Gravitas design process grows from initial sketches through permit drawings for construction, modeling their work in 3D to allow clients to hold a complete understanding of forms and spatial relationships in their structures.
A stated goal of their work is to “highlight the simplicity of materials, the graceful path of the sun, the comfort of the users, and their movement in and through each space,” and with this home we present today, it certainly shows.
Here we have a view of the reverse side of the home; large expanses of glass allow for natural light to flood the home, especially the great room with floor to vaulted ceiling windows.
Second angle on the back side of the home highlights the many doorways and patio areas, plus exposed beam construction running through the interior and exterior.
Small barn sits near house facing in from driveway. Structure built from reclaimed old barn wood.
