Loom 2one-Six in Aspen, Colorado by 1 Friday Design Collaborative

Friday, November 25th, 2011

Article source: 1 Friday Design Collaborative

What began as a kitchen remodel within a historic Aspen mining cottage grew to involve a series of artist studio studies for the backyard of the quaint Hyman Avenue residence known as the Pink House. Two very unique directions were initially investigated in direct response to budget concerns and alternate programmatic directions.  Incorporating LEED inspired solutions to take advantage of solar paths and materials with high performance returns was a priority.  For example, the open latticed loft design of the interior space in addition to the window sizing and placements assists in creating a natural heating and cooling feature by allowing the circulation patterns to draft from lower to upper levels accordingly.

Nove I in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

Nove 1 consists of two 3,500 square foot single-family residences located on a corner lot in Aspen’s West End neighborhood. Sometimes entitled “Sibling Rivalry,” Nove’s two residences divide the property into equal halves and draw a line – the concrete landscaping wall – right down the double courtyard in the middle. The residences are within easy walking distance of Aspen’s numerous cultural activities. The architecture of the houses is clean and sophisticated. The exterior and interior material palate is simple yet elegant, and designed for housing of the residents’ many pieces of artwork. Construction was completed in the fall of 2005.

Scholl Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

The Scholl Residence expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. The steep site possessed challenges with drainage, topography, a small footprint, restrictive easements and was required to address very limiting neighborhood design review standards. Contextually, the area was developed in the 1960’s and surrounding residents were quite resistant to the architectural direction. Although the neighborhood is one of transition, this was the greatest challenge in realizing the project.

Nove 2 in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

This small residual wedge-shaped property sat vacant for years given its many site restraints and complexities including; front streets on two sides, 10’-0” snow storage easements on 2 sides, buried City of Aspen main water and electric lines directly under the building footprint which required re-location and a year of approvals and strict zoning ordinances given its location in Aspen’s Historic West End.

La Muna Mountain Home in Aspen, Colorado by Oppenheim Architecture + Design

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Article source: Oppenheim Architects

A complete renovation and minor addition of one of the first homes built in the ultra-exclusive enclave of Red Mountain in Aspen Colorado. 30 years of hazardousness of this rustic ski chalet with all its imperfections is a  homage to the Japanese sensibility of wabi sabi. Clad in reclaimed regional wood, stone and steel the home is intended to make a minimal impact on the natural resources and merge effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings of forest, stream and mountain. Solar collectors provide needed energy for power and hot water, while extremely large operable panels of insulated glass blur the boundaries between inside and out– further enforcing a connection and deep respect of place.
