Remarkable transformation of a mid-century ranch home in Aspen

mid-century-ranch-home-exterior

Rowland+Broughton Architecture and Urban Design is responsible for the renovation of this impressive mid-century ranch home located in Aspen, Colorado. Encompassing 3,600 square feet of living space, there was no need for an addition to this home, only to work on enhancing the best features of the existing structure. To do so, the architects were able to re-use a good portion of the original walls and roof structure – sixty percent to be exact!

The original flooring was torn out and replaced with more updated materials that further enhances the aesthetics of the overall design. The roofline was increased to incorporate clerestory windows as well as skylights, illuminating the main living areas as well as the master bedroom en-suite with natural light. An open plan layout was generated with the living and dining area as well as the kitchen by tearing down existing walls, creating an expansive and harmonious living space.

The living room is at the heart of the home, where the design team decided to maximize the use of this space by creating a wall of glass that can fold away to create a seamless connection between the interior and exterior living spaces. The backyard has a park-like feel with the way it was designed close amongst the trees and manicured lawn. There is also a rooftop terrace that creates additional space for the homeowners to entertain, relax and enjoy the magnificent mountain vistas in the distance.

The fireplace acts as a visual divider between the dining and living room, creating intimate gathering spaces within an open layout. Horizontal curved zinc panels creates a sculptural chimney, a focal point of this space.

This Aspen home is really beautiful and I love the family room with the dark shelves and the build-in TV. Very charming.

Is there anyway I can find out where to purchase a rug like the one in the living room?
