Located in the coveted Double Bar X Ranch in Aspen, Colorado, this property offers unique views, interesting siting opportunities and incredible light and openness. The design reflects the developer’s wish to design a home that respects the former ranch vernacular yet meets the programming elements for a contemporary residence in Aspen.
We are proud to announce another new addition to our architectural team. Eric Wood has joined us and will be a key player with his extensive Revit and project management experience. Welcome to the team Eric!
Our team at CCA designed a private art gallery for some of our most wonderful clients in Aspen, Colorado. As an extension to their home, the gallery space affords the owners the perfect venue to showcase their art as well as entertain.
Eleven years ago, the Aspen Glen Golf Clubhouse opened to serve its many dedicated members. Jack Nicklaus and his son, Jack Nicklaus II, were hired to design the course. The back nine opened in July 1997, and in September, Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II played the inaugural round consisting of all 18 holes.
Charles Cunniffe Architects was proud to be involved with the master planning process and design of the clubhouse and auxillary spaces. Eleven years later the club still exudes the relaxed, warm, mountain clubhouse feel that was intended. We are still so proud of this project. For more information, visit Aspen Glen Club. To see more images of this project, please visit Charles Cunniffe Architects-Aspen Glen Golf Clubhouse.
Charles Cunniffe Architects has added another star to the team – Scott Smith. Scott comes to CCA with extraordinary professional experience, having previously run his own firm. As the new General Manager, Scott will oversee all project related efforts at the firm as well as be a project lead. We are thrilled to welcome Scott Smith.
For all of the fellow architecture and design lovers out there- The Extraordinary Joseph Urban exhibit at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, Florida. If you are in the area, this impressive show is definitely worth a visit.
Urban was one of the great architects of the Gilded Age, as well as an illustrator, designer, and set designer. As the New New York Herald-Tribune noted, Urban “did more than any other man to revolutionize the American sense of design … He had a feeling for color and material so original that they did much to remake the American stage, revitalize American architecture and contribute a new impetus to American industrial design.”

The buildings credited to this visionary architect include the Esterhazy Castle in Hungary and the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York, as well as quite a few Palm Beach buildings, like Mar-A-Lago, the Paramount Theater, and the Bath and Tennis Club. Visitors to the exhibition will get a first hand look at some of the few remaining copies of Urban’s elevations and renderings for the Mar-A-Lago estate and the Oasis Club, as well as a tour through Urban’s body of work.
Take a look at a few of Urban’s most famous buildings below.
For more information about this exciting exhibit celebrating Urban’s unique and original vision, visit the Flagler Museum.

A true sense of light and space was created in this master bath, through spacial relationships, lighting and materials. A soft glow illuminates the vanity through integrated lighting in the mirrors. Arctic Grey Polished Marble counters with sleek wall mounted faucets and undermounted sinks, meet the Walnut cabinets that close softly with stainless pulls.
Seemingly floating in the middle of the space is the glass and Arctic Grey Polished Marble shower. With glass doors entering both sides of the shower, the steam shower includes rainheads and body spray technology.
Surrounded by windows looking out to the adjacent patio, the bathtub stands alone in its marble surround. The wall-mounted faucet is built into marble ledges, designed to frame the tub. This unique bath feature enforces the contemporary feel seen throughout the home.
