Serene Sanctuary

A Colorado-crafted pavilion is a serene “jewel box” nestled into the heart of the mountains

The octagonal “spirit center” provides a special space for nurturing wellness of mind, body and spirit near Avon, Colorado. Owners of the adjacent home asked Dave Argo, of No Name Architects in Glenwood Springs, to design a freestanding structure that would complement the existing residence without copying its design. The resulting pavilion is a fanciful 1,200-square-foot, cupola-topped creation. The two-story retreat includes an upstairs multi-purpose gathering space, while the walk-out lower level houses a sauna, steam room and spacious gym, where tall windows allow the homeowners to enjoy valley views from the elliptical trainer and stationary bike. Clad in decay-resistant, rough-sawn Western red cedar and rugged moss rock, the structure exhibits what Argo refers to as “mountain contemporary” style.
