Contemporary hillside house connected to its surroundings in Colorado

contemporary-hillside-house-exterior

CCY Architects was commissioned to design this contemporary hillside house that overlooks a flowing creek below, located in Aspen, Colorado. The sprawling property encompasses 2.47 acres, where the residence that sits on it offers its inhabitants 9,918 square feet of living space. It is a rigorous contemporary house that responds to and connects with its site and the environment. 

The dwelling is conceived as three pods, which have been connected by transparent links. Each pod cantilevers over a solid base; the cantilevers accentuate the steep drop into a ravine, perching the inhabitants above the creek below. The pods push, pull, and rotate to create pockets of privacy within the context of the landscape.

Primary Materials: Board Form Concrete, Cedar, Zinc, and Glass

Flanked by the living and guest pods, the east outdoor room is shielded from a nearby bridge and focuses views across the ravine to a distant valley. The southwest lawn, bordered by the master and living pods, is carved into the site and enclosed by architectural concrete walls. Recessing the lawn into the grade creates added privacy from an adjacent right of way. Native vegetation extends to the site walls creating a Zen-like oasis in the landscape.

What We Love: This contemporary hillside house is surrounded by a stunning, rugged landscape of mountains and mature growth trees. A fascinating exterior facade of board form concrete and glass invites visitors up to this home. From the interior, the glass helps to capture views of the incredible landscape that surrounds this dwelling. Throughout, eye-catching material elements helps to add stylish details… Readers, what are your thoughts on the design of this home? Please tell us what you like or don’t like in the Comments below!
