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.
A majority of the materials used for the construction of the building have been locally sourced. What is most amazing here is rebirth of an almost disintegrated and abandoned farmhouse into a super awesome domicile.
Spread across 12000 sq ft of space the mansion created by and of jamesthomas imbibes all those natural elements into it at the same time sports a very modern outlook. Once you step inside you can find that the indoor decor has been done in a way that it holds an earthly sort of sober tone to it. There is not much use of any contrasting color or style and everything appears to be in a neutral and balanced way.
It has also got a fully-closed courtyard with large glass windows is another element of attraction. The flooring is mostly wooden. Imported stones are also used. Hiroshi Senju portraits decorate the walls. And furniture pieces have been designed by Cecotti Collezioni which is why they are so impressive.
The glass material used for its construction is 6 to 7 mm thick. The material can be specially heated during the winter which is one of the best and most demanded characteristic feature. It is simply awesome to behold and looks like a perfectly cut and polished glass cube from outside with a blue tinge to it. But I really wonder how one could live inside such a building.
The interiors are divided between public and private spaces with the high ceiling and open space constructing an inviting platform for a lifestyle in perfect balance with the alpine landscape. An immense rock wall serves as a divider separating the East from the West and also functions as a temperature stabilizer. The use of wood gives you a warm touch visually and a beauty all on its own. The folded roof gives the building a modern look that also blends into the stately mountainous terrain.
White walls bright colored doorsand delectable decorations altogether give this home a cool outlook.
