Contemporary home in Colorado delivering idyllic mountain views


This contemporary residence was designed by Zone 4 Architects in collaboration with DEMESNE, nestled at the base of a mountain in Aspen, Colorado. Sitting next to an area of open space, the architects sited this 6,000 square foot home to take advantage of the views. Large lift and slide doors open to merge the indoors with the outdoor living area. The exterior facade showcases a balanced composition of modern and traditional roof shapes, along with a contemporary material palate.


What We Love: This fabulous contemporary home is surrounded by the pristine beauty of the Colorado mountains. Indoor-outdoor living spaces have been designed to maximize views of this home’s stunning environment. The interior offers an open and airy layout that is ideal for both family living and entertaining… but we can’t get past the magnificent scenery!! …Readers, are you a fan of mountain living?

Above: The elegant simplicity of creating design elements from structural steel add a functional element of design interest to the room. Clerestory windows help to add natural light without opening the room to the auto-court and street. Large lift and slide doors open to an outdoor living area, creating true indoor-outdoor living space. A wood ceiling adds character without competing with other design elements and art.


Above: This light and airy staircase allows light to filter through all levels, and uses similar detailing found elsewhere in the residence to keep design continuity and unified design elegance.



Above: A compact yet comfortable contemporary kitchen allows for a range of seating options and interaction. Clean lines and design allow the space to be seen as either a beautiful kitchen or as part of the art landscape of the house.



Above: Contrasting materials provide visual pop in this powder room space. The darker wall finish makes the brass accents pop, while the white marble sink and counter provide contrast.


Above: Simple and elegant palate of materials and design allow the bathroom elements to compliment the space but not overpower.
