Tucked away in a residential neighborhood of Aspen is this contemporary home with spectacular Mountain views. With useful living and entertaining spaces that complement the natural beauty of the landscape, the architecture has replaced traditional corners with glass windows that allow for unexpected views of Red Butte, Aspen Mountain, Shadow Mountain and Independence Pass. Also connecting the home to nature, the floor plan melds indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. The modern kitchen and gathering space surround a two-story stone fireplace. Glass walls make up the entire back of the house and can be retracted to erase all boundaries between the residents and the view outside. Off the kitchen, a formal dining room opens to an outside garden for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining. To complete the relationship between nature and home, they utilize natural climate control measures to maintain the homes constant ambient temperature through passive solar, rain screens and de-stratification fans to circulate warm air in the winter and exhaust it in the summer.
