Residing in Aspen's exclusive Red Mountain, the La Muna House gives new life to one of the first homes ever built in the area. To fall in line with the Japanese principle of wabi-sabi, the home embraces its imperfections from 30 years of wear and tear, while also incorporating a variety of rough textures and finishes. The exterior fuses with its rustic surroundings by combining a mix of materials, including reclaimed regional wood, stone, and weathered steel and copper. The mountain setting flows into the interior with flagstone floors and weathered timber panels on the walls and ceilings. Terraces flank the exterior to make room for a fire pit and hot tub, as well as creating expansive views of the alpine landscape.
