Buttermilk Residence

Located in a mature Aspen grove, this ten-acre site commands spectacular views toward Mount Sopris. The clients wanted the home to have a constant visual reference to nature, capturing long views as well as the glade intimacy of the adjacent landscape.

The conceptual design is that of a “linear village” created around a garden wall, a continuous stone spine that begins and ends as a garden wall, but is periodically eroded or extended to enclosure as function and choreography dictates.
