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.
The eastern side of this alluring home is kept well away from the view of the word as it cuts into the rocky terrain of the area to find a place for private spots hidden away from prying eyes and the traffic on the coastal highway. The western wing of the home though is a place where the structure pens up to the beautiful and rugged Pacific coastline and the owners can enjoy unending sights and sounds of the vast blue along with cool sea breeze.
The base shade of the walls and ceilings are off-white which enhances the already existing serene feeling. Arranged beautifully the living area is enticing with the shelves photo frames as well as the book shelf finding the perfect slots. Kitchen is quite big and is adorned with modest decorations.
In contrast the kitchen very simple and the main aim has been to make it more functional. The designer has succeeded in that. Like Andrews’ other projects vintage pendants light fixtures vases and the like are used aplenty here too. In short what you get to see is an amalgamation of all styles and periods. It has won the 2012 CH+D Award winner for Residential Interior Design. The house stands on 3000 sq ft of space.
Located in Arbel Israel the house displaying country-style-inspired beams on the outside is a comfortable crib open to the north through a glass facade. This large glazed side allowed the architects to construct a concrete wall blocking the views from the south and offering privacy to the interior spaces.
Accompanied by the Louis Poulsen Panthella Floor Lamp this pendant light acts more like a floor lamp and balances the design. Stretched over a wooden frame the Moments pattern from Marimekko fabrics was painted in neon colors. The comfy couch is lit from another beautifully designed piece – the AJ wall lamp by Arne Jacobsen also seen in the bedroom.
With beautiful colors and astounding features that could make anyone fall in love with it the entire home has been divided into two equal sections with the help of a horizontal plane that ensures that half of the entire home lies underground and is protected away from the adjacent highway while the other half offers magnificent and unending views of the waves and the rocky coast.
