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
