  • 2. PROFILE Founded in 1981 by Charles Cunniffe, Charles Cunniffe Architects (CCA) continues to uphold a commitment to design excellence and client satisfaction. Headquartered in Aspen, Colorado CCA has been commissioned for work throughout the United States and abroad. Our firm has successfully produced projects for a wide variety of clients ranging from private individuals to large and small business corporations and governmental entities. CCA is particularly sought out for our innovative approach to design challenges, and has a reputation for producing architectural projects that are truly inspired. Numerous national and local awards programs have recognized Charles Cunniffe Architects for design excellence, and an array of national and international architecture and design publications have featured our firm. CCA’s staff of 18 professionals combines the expertise and experience necessary to complete projects of all types. Charles Cunniffe has formulated a sound team of talented designers that compliment each other and ensure a creative, flexible environment. CCA’s size and structure enables us to offer the resources and capabilities of a larger firm, while maintaining the personalized nature of a small and creative design team. The resulting designs are individually crafted, and present a diverse portfolio with every project having a character and energy of its own. Since our inception, CCA has sought to design not only the appropriate solution for each project, but to also see that the spirit and inspiration behind the solution continues to shine after code, design review, and budget have exerted their influence. The result is a thoughtful and unique building that exudes the personality and needs of the client, the site and program. n

  • 5. r e S i D e N c e aT c rY S Ta l l a k e Located on a small, circular lot, this home exemplifies the Aspen lifestyle. The architecture’s conscientious relationship to the site lends an expansive feel to the land. An open and airy floor plan, defined by the artistic juxtaposition of steel and wood, is strengthened by its natural progression from room to room. The honesty of the materials is what gives the home its contemporary edge. n
  • 6. i N D e p e N D e N c e r e T r e aT A great house reacts to how it is sited, and responds to its larger setting in the world. Recipient of several architectural awards, this home highlights the very best in contemporary mountain architecture. The home takes everyday elements of design, like a stairway or fireplace, and elevates them from mere construction into the realm of sculpture. n
  • 7. 1 3 7 5 r e D M o U N Ta i N r o a D Inspired by the dramatic views of Aspen Mountain, this contemporary 11,250 square foot residence, literally built into the mountainside, is a structural marvel. Sophisticated interiors and a seamless transition from the commanding views to the interiors, magnifies the excellence of this design. n
  • 8. Aspen mAnor Designed to provide luxurious entertaining space and capture views of Aspen Mountain, this architecturally exquisite residence boasts 12 bedrooms, a glass encased elevator, theatre, gym, wine cellar and gourmet kitchen. n
  • 9. craNDall reSiDeNce The primary charge was to create a house that would effectively capture but not compete with, the unobstructed views. The design would employ clean, sculptural lines, simple massing and an honest exposure of structure. After much collaboration with the client, the design is so articulated to the vista that the apex of the homes’ central gable perfectly echoes Pyramid Peak in the far distance. n
  • 10. frazier hoMeSTeaD On a windswept site high in the Rockies, inspiration for this home was derived from the ancient masonry structures of the nearby Anasazi people. The success of this project was in our response to the profound setting and use of materials, specifically the local sandstone found on the site. n
  • 11. SUNDMaN reSiDeNce Through the use of materials, sensitivity to spacial arrangements and design detailing, the essence of a Zen mountain sanctuary was successfully realized. Carrying the exterior stone to the interior, coupled with large expanses of glass, creates a connection from the interior spaces to the exterior views and gardens. n
  • 12. fUllerToN reMoDel Set on the banks of a scenic river, the original structure, built in the late 1980’s greatly reflected BEFORE the architectural style of that time. The owners engaged CCA to redesign the house to reflect their discerning, contemporary style. Zen-like applications of concrete and wood enabled the design to reflect the desired contemporary space, while maintaining the warmth for this family residence. n AFTER
  • 13. Baker reSiDeNce Overlooking the historic town of Park City, three ski areas and the valley below, this fun and whimsical vacation home acts as a mountain retreat for this active family. The barrel-vaulted roof, which cantilevers over the curved wall of the great room, is the signature element of the architectural design. Recognized as “one of the finest examples of modern architecture in the state”, this home met the challenges set forth not only by the owners, but also its environment. n
  • 14. NelSoN reSiDeNce Set on a spectacular bluff overlooking the Roaring Fork River, the configuration of this home maximizes the dramatic mountain views. Sensitivity to the context was honored by framing the views, welcoming the sights and sounds of the river. The scale and materials of the home reflect its environment, and clean lines characterize the architecture. n
