Internationally renowned casino marketing guru John Romero and his wife Robin are building a rather amazing house in the woods. John sent me to his Web site for a look at it, and I was seriously impressed. The forest estate, which has been dubbed Longtree and depicted at right in an architect’s drawing, is nestled among the Ponderosa pines on 37 acres south of Denver. The location is inspiring and to say that the architecture is unique doesn’t do it justice. Neither does my tiny picture. This 8,000 square foot home was designed by architect Robert A. Armon of Denver. It was the subject of a presentation named “The Geometry of Order and Beauty,” at the American Institute of Architects national convention in San Diego, CA, in 2002. Construction was initiated on January 14, 2005.
Longtree will be a veritable showcase–a self-contained home show. (Home equipment and building materials manufacturers take note: sponsorship opportunities are available.). Have a look for yourself at the Longtree Web site, which is impressive in itself. How many houses have their own Web sites?
