Black Birch Modern

    Aspen, Colorado

The objective to this aggressive renovation/addition was to create a modern adaptation while retaining the iconic gable forms of the existing traditional, lodge-style house


+ The floor plan was pushed and pulled to create a sense of compression and release as you move through the spaces



+ The celebration of the gable ends are in-filled completely with glass allowing natural light and surroundings to permeate inside


+ The reclaimed barn wood is incorporated into the home, blurring the line between interior and exterior



+ A mix of modern Italian furniture and fixtures are underscored by hand-made artisan furniture and natural materials



+ The open spaces of the first level flow seamlessly through the living room, dining room, and kitchen out into the alfresco living areas



+ The interiors complement the restraint and texture of the exterior materials and form



+ The master bath’s neutral stone floors, shower, and stainless steel Japanese soaking tub provide a tranquil spa-like environment with calming views of the property’s aspen trees
