T

his house is a great example of how contemporary can be really warm,” says designer Kam Davies of a residence she recently designed for a young family in Snowmass Village, Colorado. “There’s just something approachable about it. It’s meant to be lived in.”

The homeowners, Christine and Andrew Light, had been living in San Francisco but wanted to return to the Centennial State and give their children the outdoor lifestyle–skiing, hiking and biking–that Andrew had enjoyed as a kid. They also envisioned a house that allowed them to enjoy the surroundings right from the comfort of home.

The resulting design offers massive windows and an L-shaped deck, all of which focus on Mount Daly in the distance. “We wanted to maximize views and get light in at every opportunity,” says architect Bill Lueck, who added dormers to the upper floor, as well as a large glass panel at the entrance.

Inside, Davies echoed the landscape with a neutral palette and sculptural furnishings, like the Noguchi coffee table in the living area. Color she left primarily to artwork by local creatives.

“Both Christine and Andrew have a solid appreciation for the arts, and Christine has a great appreciation for Asian culture–its restraint and simplicity,” Davies adds. “The interiors here are all about texture and tone as opposed to a massing of things.”
