A mountain contemporary ski retreat was renovated by Menendez Architects in collaboration with designer Patricia Martinez Arquitetura is located in Snowmass Village, Colorado. The scope of this project entailed a complete interior overhaul of a ski-in/ski-out property. The interiors scheme reflects a mix of mountain contemporary with a modern South American aesthetic. The overall design sustains the warmth of mountain architecture through the use of natural materials of wood and stone, while following ideals of simplicity.

Wood panelling was used in the great room as a ‘reflection’ of the wooded site, which can seen through the expansive windows that frames the spectacular landscape.

What We Love: This fabulous ski retreat offers light and airy living spaces thanks to expansive windows. Small design details throughout offers high-impact, such as the changing in wall finish materials marking transitions between spaces. The heavy use of wood infuses warmth into this contemporary mountain home, creating an environment that is very ‘livable’.

Readers, please share with us what details in this home stands out to you… are there any design features that you would have done differently?
