The Light Residence
Old Snowmass, located northwest of
Aspen, has a long history of ranching
and agriculture. To this day, ranches still
operate in the valley, though the owners
some have incorporated minimal home
development in order for the business
to remain viable. The Light residence,
located on a ranch that has incorporated
a minimal number of 35-acre home
sites, is an abundantly simple, yet
elegant and contemporary rendition of
the traditional western ranch compound.
Native materials and vegetation inter-sperse
areas of introduced elements of
plants and art to establish a sense of
place that transcends its short history as
a domesticated rural landscape.
