Although stylistically different from its historic neighbor, the design of the new residence maintains the established neighborhood scale and patterns found in Aspen’s historic West End.


The building addresses Smuggler Street with a single-story porch and entry.  The porch has similar proportions to the porch on the adjacent miner’s cabin and continues the traditional entry procession with exterior steps and columns.  Behind the porch, the house turns and orients itself towards the views of Aspen Mountain and Independence Pass.  This portion of the building is low where visible from the street and slowly rises and opens to the views from the second-story living spaces.
