2. Aspen Art House by Stonefox Design
New York City and Aspen-based studio Stonefox Design has completed the renovation of this 1980s home located in Aspen, Colorado, USA.
Chris Stone and David Fox designed the house and selected the furnishings, about half of which are original Stonefox designs. “We had to create strong interiors to stand up to the art,” Fox said. The resulting light/dark palette is accented with rich, natural wood and cool gray stone. Large windows bring tremendous views of Colorado’s majestic Independence Pass and plenty of natural light.
The open spaces—even the see-through fireplace—allow glimpses of various pieces, including Damien Hirst’s “Beautiful, Lovely My Little Pony Stardust” and Edward Ruscha’s “It’s Ridiculous”, from throughout the house. The central stair pivots around an 18-foot-tall column by Jenny Holzer, commissioned by the client in collaboration with Stonefox.
The owners, both of whom serve on art museum boards internationally, wanted a house that expressed their tastes and their artistic passions. The art and architecture, together, set up a discourse on the international art scene that is intimate, challenging, cerebral, and, at times, humorous.”
3. Wildcat Ridge Residence by Voorsanger Architects
America has many spectacular sites but this property is unique among them. The site is located at an elevation of 9,200 feet and had already been excavated for a discontinued residential project. Our normal preoccupation with not impacting the landscape reverted here to rehabilitating and reforesting the uprooted site. This was not a situation where capturing the landscape was the challenge but providing a major sustainable architecture in such a fragile but challenging environment. Designed by Voorsanger Architects, the landscape itself is so dominant, spectacular, and immediate, with its alpine vistas on the horizon the design called for an architecture that moved the scale of the exterior into the interior.
The design evolved by following the longitudinal parallel of the crest of the mountain, with the public rooms, study, and master bedroom oriented west toward dramatic views. The guest bedrooms have an eastern orientation with views of the receding mountain ranges. The house is two hundred forty feet long, bisected down its length by a twelve-foot stone wall of moss rock. Entering the house, the major rooms are on the left, accessible by a gallery parallel to the wall, on the right. This area is entirely free of columns, structured in long spans by a folded plate design with ceiling heights starting at twelve feet and ascending to thirty feet. The floors, walls, and ceilings are clad in black walnut, and the exterior of local sandstone and stucco.

In September 2010, the Fourmile Canyon fire in Colorado destroyed 169 homes, including the Fry’s one.
