Mountain Residence – Aspen, CO

The house is sited on a steeply-sloped north-facing site at the base of Aspen Mountain. Nestled into the eastern end of the site for separation from a neighboring house to the west, the house is organized with all rooms facing north or west to take advantage of the dramatic views. The exterior of the house is sheathed in plywood with vertical and horizontal battens and the roof is a standing metal roof prefinished to match the siding. The interior is painted white throughout, with carpeted floors except at the entry foyer and bathrooms, where hard surfaces are used.
