A few decades ago, there wasn’t a lot of homes occupying Red Mountain in Aspen, Colorado. In fact, one of the first homes built there was La Muna House. Now, this 30-year-old house is renovated while respecting its natural surrounding.
The house is located in an ultra-exclusive enclave. In order to redesign it, the architects found inspiration in the Japanese sensibility of wabi-sabi. Nearby the house, there’s a forest, stream, and a mountain. This makes La Muna House a perfect getaway.
Important to mention is that the renovation was done with minimal impact on the environment. The eco-friendly approach doesn’t stop there. With this in mind, the 3,500 square foot house features solar panels that provide the residents with energy and hot water. Additionally, insulated glass windows are responsible for plenty of natural light coming inside.
La Muna House features a lot of wooden elements for its interior. Besides the regional wood used for the construction, architects also used stone and steel. For example, the kitchen is almost entirely made of wood. There’s a nice minimal fireplace inside for keeping the residents warm during winter.
