From the architect: The house's renovation was planned to attend the needs of a family of four, a couple and their two children. They have been frequenting Aspen for the past 18 years and fell in love with de Snowmass spot a couple of years ago. The result is an unbelievably breathtaking shelter that became a retreat for a family to spend quality time together.
