Roaring Fork Modern Ranch House (Aspen, CO)
This modern ranch house located near Aspen, Colorado was designed to incorporate a number of sustainable design features, including solar photo-voltaic panels, solar hot water and geothermal radiant in-floor heating. Central to our design philosophy, these “green” features were integrated into the architecture through a south facing roof spine which also incorporates automated windows along the ceiling to naturally ventilate the home. We feel strongly that “green” design can be beautiful, and need not appear as an afterthought. The design also includes textures and forms which allude to its rural mountain setting, but through non-traditional variations in color, detailing, and massing the home has an undeniably contemporary feel.
