Selby Residence, South Main, CO

The Selby Residence is located in South Main, Colorado, a new urbanist community that connects to the Arkansas River. The courtyard design incorporates a main runnel that provides the primary armature for the design. Rain water is collected in the runnel and recirculates into a raised water feature. Additional water is redirected to the alley of trees and provides modest amounts irrigation during the driest periods.Local stone harvest from the site is integrated into the hardscape and provides a subtle clue to the vernacular landscape. All water is contained wihtin the site and is allowed to re-charge the underground water table.
