AwardsCCASLA MERIT AWARD FOR DESIGN 2008
Within the 800 acre Wheeler Ranch, the home site contributes to the master plan, maintaining the wildlife habitat and migration corridors, ranching operations and the conservation values upheld by the Aspen Valley Land Trust. The site design is compelled to incorporate the prevailing mountain environment. Existing irrigation ditches and the seasonal hillside run-off are embraced and enhanced as water features in the landscape. Outdoor living rooms extending from the house overlook a putting green, lawn and vibrant gardens. While nestled in the mountain hillside, the home and landscape command a presence of their own within the surrounding Elk Mountain range and Snowmass Creek Valley.
