Voorsanger Architects created a stunning home in Aspen Colorado. The Wildcat Ridge residence – as it was named – sits atop a 9200 feet elevation overlooking beautiful natural surroundings. The fragile nature of the site challenged the architects to design a home that would follow the contours of the land but display a stunning modern architecture.
Situated next to the owner’s farm this modern display of architecture features a utility wall containing the AC unit storage and bathrooms placed between the public and semi-public programs. A beautiful detail in the living room captures the attention of first time visitors – the part where the exterior architecture forms a bullet shaped nook corresponds to the creative seating unit in the open space living area reminiscent of comfortable lounging chairs.
This is the right place where you may find that the neutral sober kind of interiors that too for the entire house would not be so boring and dull. The owners were keen of not having any western styles and the designers attempted to make it in the desired way.
One major highlight is the entrance hallway with a 200-pair shoes storage unit which looks absolutely splendid. Nonetheless the other storage shelves and wardrobes are quite admirable too. The terrace of the building is inspired by Parisian style.
Surprising architectural developments are easy to spot – an unusually shaped home immediately catches your attention. This is the case with the Beam House designed by Uri Cohen Architects – a single family residence that seems to have been folded onto itself. Divided in three different parts – private semi private and public – the house bearing the name of its defining feature is a mixture of traditional inspiration and clean modern design.
The other side of the black wall facing the street is white and flooded with light from above where a long and narrow skylight ensures that natural light will flood the adjacent living space separated by a glass wall. Inside this ample space the living continues with a dining/cooking area. There is an expansive food preparation area that should provide enough room for any size feast.
Tatarko tells that the renovation of their house is an ongoing project and that inspiration from Houzz and its large collection of images was a key aspect in all of it. (And we are not surprised at all!)
