Star Mesa House, Aspen Colorado

Star Mesa is a high elevation plateau that sits just outside Aspen. This home is perched right at the edge of the plateau overlooking the Sopris Mountains.

This passive solar house is designed to be a progression of spaces that start at the arrival point and entry and end at the living dining at the far end.

The exterior walk is the generator creating an elongated design to take in the extensive mountain ranges in the distance.

This home is in intimate connection with the ground as it gently steps up along the escarpment.
