What's not to love about 'La Muna', a complete renovation and minor addition of one of the first homes built in the exclusive enclave of Red Mountain in Aspen Colorado. Oppenheim Architects used reclaimed regional wood, stone and steel to make a minimal impact on the natural resources and merge the home effortlessly with its idyllic surroundings of forest, stream and mountain. Solar collectors provide needed energy for power and hot water, while extremely large operable panels of insulated glass blur the boundaries between inside and out. We wouldn't mind spending some cozy days of this years late winter here.
