Unconventional Concrete Holiday Retreat near Aspen, Colorado

Kaegebein Fine Homebuilding completed the design of an unconventional chalet situated near Aspen, Colorado. The project distinguishes itself from the typical holiday mountain retreat and this is mainly due to the lack of wood for the exterior finishes. The front facade of this construction resembles a concrete monolith, almost entirely hidden from the street side. A neutral color palette camouflages the building in its environment, making it “fade out” visually, especially during winter time.

Despite its rigid exterior design, Capitol Creek House features cozy interiors, flooded in natural light. Floor to ceiling windows open up the main living space to the serene landscape beyond. An inviting lounge area with a fireplace looks like the perfect spot for socializing during holiday times. All appliances are brand new, hinting the inhabitants’ need for modern comfort. A stairway with wooden steps leads the way to the private areas located on the second level.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city
