This beautiful modern two-storey residence situated in Aspen, Colorado was designed by Studio B Architects.
Description by Studio B Architects:
At an elevation of 9,500 feet, this 22-acre site is completely hidden from the public and hs spectacular views to the Elk Mountain Range. The horizontal L-shaped plan appeared to float above a partially buried stone plinth. The upper level plan contains the public areas and houses the meditation room, library and master suite. This solution offers views from all rooms and a rooftop terrace accessed from the inner courtyard has a viewing platform and sitting area. An exterior stair divides the lower level and accesses the rear courtyard underneath the upper plan. Materials consist of Japanese plaster, weathered teak siding, glass, and hand carved Yangtze River limestone.
