Aspen Glow

Durango, Colorado

Nestled into an alpine aspen grove near the Purgatory ski resort outside of Durango, Colorado, this home reinterprets the traditional alpine chalet, moving the climatically attuned architecture forward while providing the clients with modern conveniences. To these ends, a modern, simple palette of forms and materials serves to marry the experience of being embedded in the magical dappled light of aspens, while shedding copious amounts of snow away from outdoor living opportunities in the southern courtyard.

Metal shed roofs meld into standing seam walls, set alongside board-formed concrete walls, light wood ceilings and expansive glazing for views, sunlight and inside-outside flows. The modern interiors speak to the white bark environment and the simple elegance of contemporary mountain living.
