New York City and Aspen-based studio Stonefox Design has completed the renovation of this 1980s home located in Aspen, Colorado, USA.
Aspen Art House by Stonefox Design:
“In Aspen, Co, a hip young couple, commissioned Stonefox Design to create a home that expresses their passion for art and their style for living. This is not a fusty grouping of over-the-sofa watercolors, but a vibrant, sometimes controversial, always evolving collection that embraces young artists as well as famous names.
Chris Stone and David Fox designed the house and selected the furnishings, about half of which are original Stonefox designs. “We had to create strong interiors to stand up to the art,” Fox said. The resulting light/dark palette is accented with rich, natural wood and cool gray stone. Large windows bring tremendous views of Colorado’s majestic Independence Pass and plenty of natural light.
The open spaces—even the see-through fireplace—allow glimpses of various pieces, including Damien Hirst’s “Beautiful, Lovely My Little Pony Stardust” and Edward Ruscha’s “It’s Ridiculous”, from throughout the house. The central stair pivots around an 18-foot-tall column by Jenny Holzer, commissioned by the client in collaboration with Stonefox.
The owners, both of whom serve on art museum boards internationally, wanted a house that expressed their tastes and their artistic passions. The art and architecture, together, set up a discourse on the international art scene that is intimate, challenging, cerebral, and, at times, humorous.”
