Aspen Residence by CCY Architects

By www.architecturalrecord.com PUBLISHED: August 3, 2017

Project size: 8,250 square feet

Program: The goal was to create a multi-generational residence that embraces the individual lifestyles of each family member.

Location: Aspen, Colorado

Solution: The project site is located at the end of a mountain road with panoramic views of Colorado’s Elk Mountain Range. Nestled in a grove of Aspen trees, the public realms of the house capture the views and sun while some of the more private spaces embrace the solitude and shade of the trees.

Construction and materials: The project’s warm, textural materials echo the landscape it inhabits. The compound is defined by an assemblage of crisp gable forms and a rigorous attention to detail. A rich stone base and patinated copper roof complement the clean lines of the massing.
