This contemporary mountaintop home was designed to maximize views of the distant peaks by Charles Cunniffe Architects, located in Aspen, Colorado. The masterfully crafted residence is nestled high on top of a mountain, where the architect set the positioning of the home to perfectly frame Pyramid Peak. An open concept floorplan was designed for fluid movement and entertaining guests. The interiors serve as a backdrop for the homeowner’s unique art collection.
The exterior facade showcases dry stacked sandstone punctuated by floor-to-ceiling butt jointed glass windows and complimented by a copper roof. The interiors of this mountain home are visually striking. Beginning with the cedar beams, extending from the inviting entryway to the great room and all the way to the exterior of the structure. The flooring throughout features richly hued quarter-sawn cherry hardwood.
In the inviting living room, a ribbon mahogany fireplace adds warmth to the space while providing a beautiful focal point. It also sets the stage for the homeowner’s colorful artwork. The architects worked closely with the owner’s to bring to life their mountain dream home. Helping to integrate their “vast collection of paintings, sculptures, one-of-a-kind music machines and artifacts”, states the architects. They were able to create a home that “exceeded the owners’ expectations”.
