Victorian Square Building

    Aspen, Colorado

Victorian Square celebrates the dynamic spirit of Aspen’s rich history


Installation of this highly sustainable and 100% maintenance free brick facade is currently underway…

Installation is very low tech, simple, quick and weather independant



The bricks are fastened to an underlying structure, which ensures that they lie accurately on the surface and around the corners of the building

The second portion of the building, formed by a single, undulating African mahogany form, cantilevers over the edge of the brick façade above the pedestrian space



Inspiration was drawn from the “Pillow Factory,” a favorite backcountry destination up nearby Independence Pass, where skiers float between pillows of snow



As well as from existing architecture



And our Team…


This playful vision informed essential design details, including exterior elements that appear to cascade down a portion of the building’s false storefront facade



North facing windows incorporate the rhythm of town and reflect the patterns of windows throughout the downtown area


Incorporation of timeless architectural details respect the craftsmanship of the past, while sleek, fresh lines speak to modern technology and design



Scandinavian influences lend to traditional practices such as “topping out” 



This practice is a builders’ rite held when the last beam is placed atop a structure during its construction
