What better place to feature concrete walls than a posh mountain retreat in Aspen’s fanciest?! Despite the popular belief that concrete walls are sterile and cold this stylish reinvention of the mountain lodge proves how a creek-side Old Snowmass home converts from hippie to contemporary while being cozy at the same time. Add plenty of glass to the whole recipe and call it “perfection”.
Designed by Swaback Partners the ingenious home moves away from the general architectural style of the high Sierra region and uses wood in an extensive and sculptural fashion to create a truly distinct residence. The expansive wooden façade also complements the snow-clad slopes outside in a picture-perfect manner.
The key to creating a modern glam loft is knowing when to hold back. This look is every bit as subtle as it is stunning. While not as luxe as a penthouse featuring mirrored furniture and Hollywood Regency flair the glamour comes from the little things: a marble surface here and there a shiny light fixture or a geometric patterned rug. Clean-lined furniture keeps the elegance in check.
The home is on three levels and built on a sloping mountainside surrounded by majestic tall pine trees. You enter the residence from the top floor over the tree canopies to keep the views uncompromised where you will find the Main living spaces for the Homeowner.
