Starwood79 is a high-end spec home situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains above Aspen, CO. The site itself is located in the prestigious Starwood community with westerly views across the city of Aspen and panoramic views across all four resort peaks including Ajax, Highlands, Buttermilk/Tiehack, and Snowmass. The home is site to minimize impacts to the natural grade as it contours across the slope. ALA assisted the architect and planning team with numerous massing and site studies, driveway alignments, and finally site and landscape programming and visualization. The landscape program includes various garden terraces to experience the mountain site, each with unique views of the surrounding terrain, pool terrace, spa, outdoor dining space, fire features, intimate garden rooms, outdoor kitchen, and elegant lawn and arrival court spaces.
