A peek inside this amazing mountain refuge in the Colorado Rockies

mountain-home-exterior

This contemporary refuge in the mountains was designed as the personal family home of the co-founders of RKD Architects, located in the vibrant community of Edwards, Colorado. This house is a composition of simple shed roofs, expressed on the interior with raw, almost urban loft-like imagery and angular stone forms.

On yet another spectacular mountain site, the homeowners decided to build a home for themselves. The construction proceeded in phases, with the garage and guest wings completed first. The main living areas and the owner’s bedroom suite were finished 12 years later.

What We Love: This beautiful mountain refuge in Colorado provides its inhabitants with warm and inviting living spaces. Large windows frame breathtaking surroundings that perfectly capture the evolving seasons. The architects did a fabulous job of bringing their vision to life in their personal family home. The customized furnishings and details throughout this dwelling make it feel unique and completely personalized to their lifestyle.
