This developer’s property lies on the ski hill in Aspen and features a ski-in/ski-out location. Taking advantage of an obviously sloped site, the residence has both a walk-out level to the lower hill and partial basement below the walkout. In order to preserve escape routes at the basement level, concrete window wells were created and covered in stone to preserve exterior aesthetics while meeting fire codes. This is a four-story wood-framed building with steel framing to preserve open floorplan and multiple floor height changes at each level. The home has a 24-foot retaining wall inside residence to support the upper driveway and parking .
