Modern retreat in the mountains
This stunning house in Aspen, Colorado has been designed by the esteemed architecture firm Studio B Architects. The steeply confined site possessed challenges with excavation, topography, drainage, restrictive easements and was required to address strict subdivision design covenants. Contours of the site defied the street grid and the house sits parallel to them and stands in contrast to its neighbors. The clients dwell between Miami and Aspen and are avid collectors of videography and photography. They requested a solution that could exhibit their expanding and revolving collection. The resulting architecture is calculated and sober in its detailing and resolution in plan is honest and simple.
