Rooted in Aspen’s rich history, the architectural design for the project is reminiscent of the modern chalet form, including long sloping rooflines, that was prevalent in Aspen when skiing was first introduced. The project offers 88 guest rooms, including six suites, and 11 W-branded fractional residences. Additional features include an over-size split level living room-lobby, as well as a 1,600 SF lounge patio, a 2,300 SF residences private roof deck and a 9,700 SF public roof deck with a rooftop bar and 620 SF pool, both with epic views overlooking Aspen Mountain.

R+B worked closely with ownership and the development team on the conceptual design to secure public approvals and entitlements. R+B went on to fully document the permit construction drawings and collaborated with W in-house design and Nemaworkshop of New York City for the interior design.

We are proud to be a part of such an amazing project. W Aspen is a great example of how the true spirit of a property can be maintained while elevating the experiences of the next generation of travelers and residents. By design, the architectural concept of a modern ski chalet links Aspen’s past, present and future. As Aspen architects and residents alike, we look forward to seeing our combined vision take shape.” – John Rowland, AIA, Principal
