Design Statement | The structure was designed as a duplex home totaling 10,063 sf, with both units featuring master suites, secondary bedrooms, laundry, kitchen, great room, dining, and outdoor patios and roof decks. The units are separated by a large concrete demising wall 30 feet tall and 12 inches thick.

The forms of the structure take on a modern design with cubes that stackand cantilever, or levitating, from the structure. Views of the West Vail Valley can be enjoyed from most rooms of each unit.

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 selected by the client. The master suite of the larger unit was established as one of the signature pieces of the home, cantilevering 12 feet 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 the Rockies.

Judges’ Comments | This home is jaw-dropping at every turn. From the cantilevers to the well-detailed glass box concept to the way the home nestles into the site, what’s not to love?
