New York city-based studio Voorsanger Architects has designed the Wildcat Ridge Residence in Aspen, Colorado, USA. The site is located at an elevation of 9,200 feet and had already been excavated for a discontinued residential project. The residence’s 200 acre plot runs parallel with the crest of the mountain ridge, where unique views of the surrounding forest landscape and mountains are aplenty.
The house’s energy sources are seventy-two geo-thermal wells and a generator, meaning that it can virtually function independent of outside support services. A large cantilever metal plated roof protects the home from the harsh snows of winter and the extreme heat of summer. In all, the Wildcat Ridge Residence is a creation where its interiors vie with the impressive exterior architectural design.
