About 156 SOUTH SANDRUN Road

Eight years prior to the formation of Brixen & Christopher Architects, Martin Brixen was commissioned to build this stellar residence. Marty was ready to take flight, as evidenced in the butterfly roofline, floor-to-ceiling windows, and horizontal lines that bridge the finest modern designs of his time, and ours. His eventual firm went on to build the Snowbird Ski Resort (the original buildings), the Sprague Library, and the Red Butte Gardens and Arboretum visitor center, just to name a few. Nearest and dearest to my heart is the Skyline High School pool and gymnasium complex. It's astonishing to think that Marty Brixen was only 27 years old when this home was completed in 1955. I am often asked by architecturally significant homeowners about what I think their architect would have thought of their remodel. My answer has always been that if they had the materials and technology at the time, the original architects surely would have used them. An Italian Boffi kitchen, SubZero fridge, cedar and steel exterior, custom steel pivoting front door, Control 4 smart home, air purifier, and water softener remade this home into an elevated modern for today. Fifty years after this home was first erected by his partner, Jim Christopher came briefly out of retirement to help my clients restore this home. He assisted with an office addition with its own entrance, a mud room, and a courtyard which sits squarely between the carport and the glass wall of the kitchen. (The footing is ready to go if the next owner desires to enclose the carport into a garage.) An addition to the walkout basement provided space for a gym, and the plumbing is already in place for a fourth bathroom. This home wasn't just remodeled. It was completely gutted and rebuilt, with a painstaking respect to its mid-century roots and spirit. Bringing the abode into new-century living also secured it a place far into the future. It doesn't get much better than to receive the guidance and blessing of your architect's partner, watching over your home's total rejuvenation. This home is about as perfect as they come. There are very few homes of this caliber that have been redone as thoughtfully and meticulously as this one has. We are the stewards of the places we call home, and the clients have ensured this home will carry on for many decades to come.
