Project Description: Described by Aspen Community Development Staff as "the best ADU ever seen", this detached ADU supports the goals of AACP and provides deed restricted housing within the City core. The little structure is sited between a large main house, Aspen Mountain and a shared driveway. There is a desire to express the extreme natural conditions of Colorado with an explicit structural expression that is both light, light giving, and mysterious.
