A Glimpse At The Gorgeous Deaton Sculptured "Sleeper" House on Genesee Mountain in Colorado

The Sculptured House, also known as the Sleeper House, is a distinctive elliptical curved house built on Genesee Mountain in 1963 by architect Charles Deaton. It is featured prominently in the 1973 Woody Allen sci-fi comedy Sleeper - to this day, the original Orgasmatron is still inside (in the form of a working elevator). Architect Charles Deaton has described his inspiration for the house: "On Genesee Mountain I found a high point of land where I could stand and feel the great reaches of the Earth. I wanted the shape of it to sing an unencumbered song." photographs by Oliver Maxwell Kupper
