Studio House, 1997
970 NW Elford Drive
The Studio House stands as Tom Kundig’s breakthrough project – one that brought him in contact with a patron who was excited to experiment with raw materials in creating an interactive dwelling that was "rooted in the past, yet predictive of the future." Intentionally rustic and proven materials, such as structural steel and concrete are celebrated for the strength and connection to the elements that they provide, yet spaces are carefully edited, adhering to the disciplined, modernist line that has come to define Kundig’s work.
The strict massing of the structure and meticulous sighting are gleefully contrasted with playfully interactive and industrial

Mixed Use Complex
290 Townsend Street
Mixed Use Complex: Contemporary 2 + bedroom and 4 bedroom penthouse plus commercial space. Born of controversy but now celebrated, the creative vision of New York architects Smith-Miller and Hawkinson and dogged persistence of the owner expanded this resort town’s vision of compatibility within its National Historic District. Using the vernacular of Telluride’s mining and commercial buildings rather than the traditional foursquare late Victorian, and Gothic revival residences which predominate, a dynamic space for modern living and working has been achieved.
