Architects Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and Shelton, Mindel & Associates collaborate to create an Aspen, Colorado, home that showcases both its stunning valley setting and vistas of majestic mountains. Quartzite walls extend from the house and ground it in the landscape, which was devised by the Aspen firm Bluegreen.
