After a wildfire razed her family's property in Boulder, Colorado, architect Renée del Gaudio chose to use the disaster as an opportunity to build a new home that is as sustainable as it is resilient. “The new house’s facade had to be 100 percent fire-resistant," says del Gaudio, "so I took that cue from mining buildings and chose corrugated metal for the exterior.”
