Located on a spectacular site looking towards the majestic Box Canyon, the Telluride Glass House is carved into a vertical wall of Aspen trees, rock cliffs, and wandering creeks, spread across a 3-acre lot adjacent to majestic Bridal Falls.
Designed by Efficiency Lab for Architecture, the private home features three glass pavilions cascading up the steep slope of the mountainside allowing for incredible panoramic views from all three levels. An abundance of natural materials and finishes were used throughout the design to tie in the natural, rugged surroundings of the home.
Classic Stone worked closely with the design team to provide samples and recommendations for various stone options that would complete the exterior walls. In the end, ‘Shadow’ marble, with its haphazard white veining, was selected in a split-face brick pattern. The raw finish really exposes the natural beauty and variation of the stone – the perfect choice for this mountain home!
Sourced and supplied from Turkey, the stone went from one majestic mountain to another, seamlessly merging into the slopes and cliffs of the canyon.
The project was completed in 2021.
