Mountain retreat snowmass

LOCATION: Roaring Fork Valley, snowmass village
CLIENT: Private
SCOPE: landscape architecture, site design, grading/drainage, planting
COMPLETION: Summer/Fall 2017


In the Fall of 2016 ALA was approached by a client to assist with the design of their property in Snowmass.

The site itself is a ski-accessed, single family lot spanning two parcels high above Snowmass Village. 

ALA visited the site, taking notes and photos, before understanding the clients objectives in conjunction with the sites opportunities and constraints. 

Utilizing SIM-technology, ALA developed full 3D models of the existing and proposed site conditions including grading, slope, and drainage analysis along with existing vegetation, tree mitigation, and proposed planting schemes.

The concept creates a home carefully nestled in the native mountain landscape with large stone outcroppings holding the expansive stone patios to the steep slopes and a cascading stream stitching the arrival and living spacesinto one, seamless experience.
