Low-Profile Telluride Abode has Chic Fireplace, Ready for Après

Last week Curbed Ski told you why you need to get to Telluride, ASAP, and this week we've brought you a lovely piece of architecture to fuel your new ski town obsession. Sitting at 10,000 feet in the San Juan Mountains, this vacation home from Massachusetts-based Anmahian Winton Architects combines low-profile design with dramatic mountain materials. The 8,000-square-foot steel and wood frame structure uses an L-shaped plan and looks like a modern, mountain-inspire Mad Men getaway. Just check out the sunken living room/fireplace area; it's the perfect spot to mix up an Old Fashioned or Tom Collins after skiing. Limestone walls, a copper and steel plate facade, and oak wood reclaimed from an old barn round-out the sleek material choices. And don't miss this home's take on the standard mountain bunk room; modern-slated twin beds provide sleeping quarters for 6.
