Defined by a historic tree-lined grid pattern, this ski home in Aspen is located on a corner lot in the West End. The diverse architectural character of the neighborhood varies from turn of the century Victorian to modern; the dimensional size and site disposition of architectural elements being informed by strict zoning guidelines to maintain neighborhood scale. Designed to complement the contemporary tastes of the client while acknowledging in-town privacy, the house creates a strong connection to the outdoors and south-facing Aspen Mountain views.
Lift and slide doors completely open to extend family spaces into the garden environs and reciprocally, exterior spaces into the home. Upper level loft and Master Bedroom spaces capture unobstructed mountain views above neighboring development. A light-filled open tread stairway connects sub-grade rooms and upper level spaces to the entry level family gathering areas.
