Aspen, CO

SUMMARY:

The Residence was built in 1885 by Julius Berg during the building boom of Aspen’s mining era. Berg was the town’s first confectioner and it’s said that his cow took up residence in its own custom-built shed located on the site.

Austin Lawrence Partners were approached in 2010 because of their experience and reputation within Aspen and its commissions. The restoration and redevelopment were completed in February 2014. The total square footage of the two residences is 6,800 square feet. The exterior modifications made in the 70’s and 80’s were removed, and a 5,000 square-foot new addition was added as a contemporary complement to the miner’s cottage. The cow shed continues to hold its place as a part of Aspen’s history and as a wing on the new addition.
