This luxurious mountain contemporary home was designed by Charles Cunniffe Architects, located in Aspen, a ski resort town in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. Nestled adjacent to a preserved agricultural field, and anchored by dramatic South and West views of Aspen and Snowmass ski areas, this dwelling takes complete advantage of its natural surroundings.

Thoughtfully oriented on its site, this home soaks in views of the Elk Mountain Range. The structure stretches alongside a 10-acre hay field that intricately connects the interior and exterior spaces to provide expansive south-west views and daylight throughout the dwelling.

The roof plane floats over the main living area, sloping to a twenty three foot tall glazed curtain wall, drawing the eye and experience across the field to the dramatic mountain landscape beyond.

A south-facing glazed wall with tall pivot doors to the patio allows an intertwining of interior and exterior dwelling experience. The patio stretches out and engages the agricultural field and pulls the dwelling experience further into the landscape and place.

i guess at some point people with money decided that living in houses wasn’t enough. instead, they wanted to build private hotels to use as personal getaways. maybe i have grown tired of such over the top construction as i find it hard to admire such a display of profligate waste. but i guess the detail that struck me most was the size of the geothermal field.
