The White Horse Springs residence is a distinguished property located adjacent to McLain Flats Road, in the Roaring Fork Valley.  ALA provided construction documents that focused on the execution of a cohesive site plan and various niche spaces.  Upon arrival, one passes through an entry gate constructed of board form concrete and steel, which then transitions to an arcing driveway, and auto court / guest drop-off announced by a grove of aspen trees located at the front entry.  The interior courtyard is one of the most restful and contemplative spaces on the property.  The courtyard is characterized by subtle and refined details, such as linear water features with aspen trees framing the feature placement, a discrete fire feature flush with the terrace finished elevation, and soft planted joints in the paving.  Other site features include a pool, spa, dining terrace, and roof terraces that include a spa, fire feature, and green roof.
