Mountain Contemporary Home
Aldasoro, Telluride, Colorado
110 Bernardo Drive – As shown below, this home featured in Mountain Living Magazine is a real showpiece. After all, it was designed for the mountain views as the priority along with a comfortable contemporary feel. One of the 1st of its kind in Telluride, Gerald Ross, incorporated recycled Doug Fir trusses from a Utah railroad trestle. Included was steel from the Industrial Age to make a bold statement. Furthermore, Gerald fondly calls the architecture “Mount-Industrial.”
To emphasize the entry axis, it contains a picture perfect view of Mount Emma. In detail glass walls overlook the water feature that flows under the entrance. Also the cherry flooring and Doug Fir ceilings provide warmth and a relaxing atmosphere throughout the home. For this purpose, an open floor plan allows easy access and excitement to the complex design. As a result, this mountain contemporary design is a departure point from the rustic homes normally constructed in the region. Notably the architecture is still timeless today.
Another key point, is the contemporary kitchen and bar with a significant accent steel canopy. The dining room is part of the open floor plan. Noticeably the staircase makes a statement with steel channels, rope lighting and cherry treads. Markedly the master bedroom with private bath maintains solitude and serenity. In addition, there is a guest suite bedroom with bath, 3 additional bedrooms with bath, TV room, a secluded 1/2 bath and office.
In fact, Mountain Living Magazine, “The Best of the High Country,”only comes out once a year over the Christmas holidays. Importantly this magazine highlights 2 projects. For this reason, Gerald Ross, Architects were honored to have the 110 Bernardo featured. To sum up, this is a unique piece of architecture.
