Norhstar, designed by Miller Roodell Architects with interiors by Hallworth Design, sits directly across from the Northstar Nature Preserve, just east of downtown Aspen, Colorado. Tremendous attention was dedicated in locating the house perfectly within the site in order to magnify the sweeping views and surrounding valley floor.
The characteristics, design and layout of the house are very organic as juxtaposed to the landscape which provides a complimentary interaction with the surrounding nature preserve. This home, one of the more rustic projects Hansen Construction has been a apart of, utilizes reclaimed materials paired with mountain contemporary accents. The combination creates an exciting challenge — expressing the characteristics of the raw reclaimed materials while still providing clean lines and reveals that are consistent with our precise tolerances.
The project includes sophisticated and conscientious energy systems all in an incredibly warm detailed presentation. The contemporary aspects of the home, including steel window systems, ornamental trusses and blackened steel accents, all compliment the reclaimed aesthetic. There isn’t an element that appears inconsistent with the overall intent and vision of the artist client.
