La Muna / Oppenheim Architecture + Design

From the architect. A complete renovation and minor addition of one of the first homes built in the ultraexclusive enclave of Red Mountain in Aspen Colorado. 30 years of haphazard­­­­­ of this rustic ski chalet with all its imperfections—an homage to the Japanese sensibility of wabi sabi.

Clad in reclaimed regional wood, stone and steel the home is intended to make a minimal impact on the natural resources and merge effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings of forest, stream and mountain. Solar collectors provide needed energy for power and hot water, while extremely large operable panels of insulated glass blur the boundaries between inside and out-- further enforcing a connection and deep respect of place.
