New Construction - Single Family Home

Project Description

This two-level custom residence was designed for a former World Cup Snowboarder and Olympic medalist and his family. Located in Snowmass Village, the lot has expansive views toward the Owl Creek Divide. The entry level was designed with an open layout for maximum exposure to the two large decks off the back of the home. The homeowners requested that the spacious great room maintain a cozy feeling for their family. The architect achieved this by varying the rooflines to define and separate the different seating areas. A folding wall system spans the entire length of the living area, opening to a spacious deck creating the perfect indoor/outdoor entertaining space while also accentuating the breathtaking views.

With a modest one-story street front elevation, the house is nestled into the gently sloping site, with a walk-out lower level opening to a peaceful garden and stream. The lower level provides an additional casual living area intended for their two young children to "be kids" and have their own space to play and have fun. This walkout lower level opens up to a serene park-like setting covered by the terrace on the level above. Through this lower level door, the family has direct access to the town trails.

Unique Requirements/Solutions

Trapezoidal windows were integrated into the design to mimic the roof-lines and take advantage of the panoramic mountain views.
