Mountain Retreat

    Aspen, Colorado





With these thoughtfully considered concepts in mind, this modern lodge-style home, set in the Five Trees neighborhood at the base of the Aspen Highlands ski area, is a legacy home for the owners’ extended family


Within close proximity of a primary residence, this tri-level home is located on a steep site with challenging topography


Striving to balance the owners’ desired program, including:

+ Multiple bedrooms

+ Extensive decks and terraces

+ Infinity-edge pool

+ Generous motor court

Along with the constraints of the neighborhood, the architectural team specified a distinctive mountain vernacular with modern influences


+ Exterior materials were informed by the textural nature of the surrounding mountains, as well as iconic National Park lodges

+ Natural stone veneer and wood slat siding pair with a standing seam metal roof

+ Additional materials and elements include a wood slat screen at the entry, exposed wood trusses and perlins, stone caps, and a partial green roof on the main level


The interior layout reflects the owners’ desire for visible connections between main level public spaces, as well as the ability to close off the kitchen and family room while entertaining in other areas of the home


+ Four bedrooms of equal size, plus a bunkroom, are located on an upper level

+ A gym, game room, wet bar, massage room, laundry room and storage areas are located below grade

+ Throughout the home, ample wall space was designed to accommodate a significant art collection


Both the shell and core of the home are designed and engineered with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind, including:

+ Geothermal heating and cooling system
