The exposed subterranean rooms of this Aspen residence aid in bringing light into the home while connecting to the terraced backyard. Colorado-quarried stone supplied by Telluride Stone Company and cedar siding from Western Pacific Building Materials cover the facade.
The traditional shape of a chair and ottoman are punched with color creating an exciting sitting space by the window. Subterranean excavation and landscaping outside allows for more natural light into the room.
The circular wine room below the rear turret of this Tudor-style home is filled with custom built-in wine racks and stone shelves. Natural stone is used on most of the walls in the space, and reclaimed brick covers all of the floors. The entire space is "reclaimed" since it replaces what was once a garage and basement. Very little heat (or cooling) is used to make these subterranean spaces function properly.
