SNOWMASS BASE VILLAGE
The site sits within a hairpin curve and is bounded on the east by a ski lift easement. It is one of four parcels to be developed as a village center. Due to density restrictions, we developed a courtyard scheme with covered parking underneath. The design of stacked flats with wood siding and wood shingle roof was brought within budget. Energy requirements, sight angle restrictions, height, bulk and mass limitations all played a part in the complex formula of allowable construction. Tomas Frank lead the team of 6 people at WTA to produce the design for this un-built project.
