McLain Flats

    Aspen, Colorado

Situated on the edge of a cliff on an incredible site boasting panoramic views of the Aspen/Snowmass resorts and the Roaring Fork Valley, the client and team recognized the architectural uniqueness of this 1969 modern gem and vowed to restore and contemporize its character

+ 2015 AIA Colorado       Architects’ Choice Award
