A design studio in the heart of the Rocky Mountains

Get In Touch

In 1949 Walter Paepke launched a movement which became known as the Aspen Idea—nature as catalyst for the renewal of mind, body, and spirit. Intellectual, creative, and physical renewal has always been at the core of our work and studio. Meet the team.

Our studios don’t have private offices. We work side by side, partners and interns alike. That’s how we learn from each other.

You will see design reviews in our office, often. Formal and informal, large groups and small. Presenting an idea helps clarify design. Critiquing and evaluating recognizes strengths and weaknesses, pushing the best design solutions to the top.

CCY Architects 2021 Studio review

The way we live and work produces better results. We embrace a casual work atmosphere and believe cross-country skiing or biking at lunch results in a better afternoon design review.
