Aspen Mountain House

While the topography and building restrictions in Aspen are challenging, this house was designed to respond to the surrounding natural forms of the mountains with solid, vigorous materials and sinuous shapes. The result is a house that becomes part of the mountain on which it sits and which captures the majestic views as they evolve day-to-night and season-to-season.

A favorite place for the family to gather year-round is the open-air loggia, with vistas framed by heavy timber arches, a large stone fireplace, and heaters in the rafters.
