Quarry House by RKD Architects

Quarry House designed by RKD Architects consists of three pods, each with a curved, outward‐leaning window wall that draws the occupants to stunning ranchland views toward Kimbell Junction and the north. This home absorbs its persona from the surrounding Wasatch Mountain Range in Park City, Utah. Its lines are bold gestures that reflect the grandeur of the landscape and its huge, sweeping curves are on a scale that stands up to the expansive views in all directions. The outward‐leaning glass walls virtually pour the occupants into the valley below. Photography by David O. Marlow.


The materials used throughout are all natural, but they are manipulated into larger fields of texture, (such as the cut limestone walls,) and rhythmic supporting elements, (including the paired wood beams and exposed steel super‐structure.)

The concrete floor provides a clean, monolithic surface to support the structure. The result is an active family home that is almost monumental in scale, but completely in harmony with its setting.
