A Modern Mountain Home Inspired by Views
An exclusive preview of a one-of-a-kind Vail home to be featured in Mountain Living in 2021
Nestled on a half-acre parcel in the gore range of the Rocky Mountains, this modern home was designed as a duplex home totaling 10,063 square feet, with both units featuring master suites, secondary bedrooms, laundry, kitchen, great room, dining and outdoor patios and roof decks.
The larger of the two homes is nestled into the sloping hillside and features a partially subterranean bonus room and two bedrooms that look out on custom graffiti decor.
This contemporary structure, designed by California-based Brandon Architects, takes on a modern design with cubes that stack and cantilever, levitating off the structure. Stunning views of the West Vail Valley can be enjoyed from most rooms of each unit.
“We really wanted to create a space that had the quintessential mountain home feel while also reflecting the clients’ personal styles and interests,” says Chris Brandon, President of Brandon Architects. “The clients are a well-traveled couple with a fun, unique eye for design so each room has a mix of modern and eclectic.”
The master suite of the larger unit was established as one of the signature pieces of the home, cantilevering 12′ from the main structure and creating a covered loggia adjacent to the great room below. The master bedroom reaches toward the hillside and immerses the owners into the seasons that define Colorado and the Rockies.
