In the Sandia Heights neighborhood of Albuquerque, New Mexico stands an incredible house by the best architect you’ve never heard of, Bart Prince. Bart Prince is an American architect working out of New Mexico, who flies so under the radar, he doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page. His buildings scoff at traditional rectilinear forms and instead take their inspiration from the organic forms of life. We’ll cover some more of Bart Prince’s fabulous architecture in the future, but for today, we’re just enthralled by his “House Beneath the Mountain.” When conceiving the design, Prince imagined an arc with its open side facing the mountains, to fit the landscape, and nestle the house within it, a very Frank Lloyd Wright sort of attitude toward the site. When Architectural Digest reviewed the home they said “He extends the line of the bearing walls toward the court with steel beams that form triangles that converge over the center, recalling the spokes of a teepee.” Says Prince, “The beams define the outdoor space and bring the sky into the composition. Their profile ties the building both to the ground and to the sky.” Amen.
