The Nove 1 Residences by Studio B Architects in Aspen, Colorado

Studio B Architects – an Aspen-based architectural firm has designed two, twin 3,500 sq ft homes in Aspen, Colorado. Basically, the two single-family residences are located on a corner lot in Aspen’s West End neighborhood. They divide the property into equal halves and draw a line right down the double courtyard in the middle.

From the architects: “This project consists of two adjoined and related cousins on a corner site and is often thought of as a ‘sibling rivalry’. They sit quietly in the historic section of Aspen and their massing responds to the contextual rhythm. The two houses divide the property equally and draw a line through the sand via a concrete demising wall. This concrete divider yields privacy from one another, defines the patios and carries a fire element to warm the terraces on cool summer evenings. The residences are within easy walking distance of Aspen’s numerous cultural institutions and are inter-related in their posture and appearance. Because of their close proximity, the window patterns were carefully composed insuring privacy from both levels and terraces. The exterior material palate is simple yet elegant and is comprised of Italian marble slabs, mahogany siding with reveal details adding a depth to the skin and aluminum-clad doors and windows. A large double height space unites the interior of each house, serves as a gathering space, fills it with light, and contains ample wall space for art. The bold interior surfaces are contrasted by the warmth of the wood floors, casework and furniture.”
