Residential – Custom Home
7,742 square feet, 8,492 square feet (including garage)
A holistic approach was taken for this serene modern mountain homestead, designed as an Aspen retreat for a Los Angeles-based couple. Nestled on a naturally bouldered site above the Red Mountain Ranch Meadow, with views from Aspen Mountain to Independence Pass, it effortlessly evokes a place of comfort and wellness. Elements drawn inward from the exterior create a peaceful sense of home.
Connected through time and natural materials, a series of subtly connected structures combine to provide a modern interpretation of the area’s historic vernacular. Inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, which encourages appreciation of a transient beauty in the physical world, simple open forms inspire a free, spiritual nature. Elegant details add a sense of understated sophistication.
Adding to the overall experience, additional exterior focal points were created by transitioning existing boulders into smaller outcroppings and bringing the adjoining meadow up to surround the home.
