Located in the Historic Town of Aspen, Colorado, the project includes a complete renovation of a historical cabin and a new two story residential addition. The cabin and new addition were placed over a single, large new basement to provide connectivity and continuity between the large new house and smaller cabin guest house. The cabin exterior was meticulously transformed back to its original Victorian charm. The modern two story addition will be detached and placed behind the historic cabin to maintain the scale and setbacks of downtown Aspen. The new modern addition is designed to complement the historic cabin and adjacent historic mercantile buildings, utilizing exterior materials indigenous to the historic town but contrasting in massing and proportion. The streetscape and landscaping compliments the original grid pattern of the town, while creating private human scale spaces for the residence. A large rooftop deck is provided with complete outdoor kitchen and fire pit and unobstructed 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains.
