In this luxurious and aspirational home design book, the founders of renowned Colorado firm Rowland+Broughton share a selection of their extraordinary residential projects, with Aspen and the Rocky Mountains as the dazzling backdrop.

Rowland+Broughton is known for shaping the town of Aspen with their visionary work in urban design and historic preservation. Here, founders John Rowland and Sarah Broughton showcase ten spectacular residences in Aspen and the Rocky Mountains created by their innovative and talented firm.

With beautiful photography throughout, Designing Aspen includes a range of houses, from Mountain Retreat, a modern lodge-style home located at the base of Aspen Highlands, to Meadow House, positioned at the edge of a meadow amid an existing forest of spruce and evergreens, and from Art Barn, a residence with the specific purpose of displaying art, to Bagua, a Zen mountain retreat. Also featured are essays about Aspen and its history and relevance; the importance of historic preservation; client relationships; and the philosophy of the firm; and a foreword by Tom Kundig.

Perfect for lovers of home design and architecture, anyone who aspires to build or decorate a house in the mountains, and visitors and residents of Aspen enthralled by its charms, this makes a beautiful coffee table book and a captivating volume of residential design expertise and inspiration.
