Peak 8 Penthouse - New Construction

The client desired a minimally furnished home, both functional and elegant, for his family’s weekend ski retreat. Detailing is sophisticated and distinctive. The exterior blends stone, wood, stucco, steel and glass, enhancing the contemporary architecture while still appearing at home in the mountains. Warm, neutral colors echo the natural surroundings and lend softness to balance the clean, modern lines. The lighting design is bold and contemporary, featuring fixtures by acclaimed designers Ingo Maurer and Jeremy Cole.
