Bauhaus Exhibit Comes to Aspen

When the CCA team was invited to preview the Bauhaus Exhibit at Aspen Meadows, we jumped at the chance. Bauhaus, a radical 20th century art school in Germany, came to Colorado when one of its star students, architect Herbert Bayer, moved to Aspen in 1946. Bayer, who lived in Aspen for nearly three decades, restored buildings, designed homes, and created poster art to invite skiers to the then sleepy mountain town. 

The Bauhaus Exhibit offers walking tours, exhibitions, gallery shows, talks, art workshops, musical performances and pays homage the the school––and Bayer’s––impact on our town.  The year long exhibit starts Sunday, August 4.

Star Mesa’s Wine Cellar Featured

Thank you to Aspen Magazine / Modern Luxury for featuring one of our favorite wine cellars in their summer issue. Star Mesa was an exciting project, where the client charged our team to completely reinvent their home by Christmas, so their extended family could gather. 11 months was all we had to design and build the home, and we did it! Every single person in the office had a part – even the non-architects – and we were so happy when they arrived, unpacked and started celebrating. There are just some projects that really drive home, why we love this business. Star Mesa was one of them.

Featured in the summer issue, is the wine cellar. Just steps from this home’s great room, dining room and game room, an ascending staircase with steps handcrafted from antique white oak leads to a grand entry punctuated by a pair of cut Colorado buff sandstone columns adorned with natural ox horn lamps. Glass and wood pocket doors open to an opulent rotunda that houses a tasting table and space for over 1,100 bottles. To see the story, click here!

A Look Back at Independence

In honor of the 4th of July this year, we are spotlighting one of our most memorable projects, Independent Retreat. Constructed on an empty parking lot, CCA built three structures, a main home, an adjacent home and a guest house. 

Careful consideration was given to maximizing views, solar orientation and ventilation. Douglas Fir beams and Cedar ceiling bring bright modernity to this luxury getaway. It’s no surprise that CCA was awarded three architecture awards for this home. To read more about Independence retreat, click here.
