Residence in Starwood
Located on the side of Red Mountain just outside of Aspen, this house has spectacular views of the Roaring Fork Valley and the ski slopes at Aspen and Snowmass. The house is organized on three floors with the entrance and principal rooms at the middle level and bedrooms on the floor above. The lower floor contains athletic facilities, including an indoor pool and a racquetball court. Living areas are situated along the west face to take advantage of light and view, while service areas are set into the hill.
The exterior composition of projecting pavilions and bays arranged around a central cubic volume reduces the apparent mass of the house. Exterior materials of tawny granite walls, a mottled purple and green slate roof and natural wood trim help blend the house into its setting.
