Colorado-based studio TruLinea Architects designed 302 N. Aspen St. in 2009, a historic renovation and remodel of a main house and carriage shed in the town of Telluride, Colorado. The firm moved and reclassified a historic front yard shed and turned it into a carriage shed. The 3,500 square foot main house went through a major remodel and with an addition to the historic residence, taking 14 months to complete. The home was purchased for over $2 million in 2007, built in 1992, it has a stone-and-wood exterior as well as a metal roof.
The floor plan was flipped and the living areas were placed ‘high up’ to take advantage of mountain and valley views.

Kirchner, among others. There are five bedrooms and 4-1/2 bathrooms. The home also includes a lofted office, a mud room, a laundry room and a two-car garage.

This stunning cabin in Telluride mountain village, Colorado has been designed by architecture studio TruLinea Architects in conjunction with interior design firm Studio Frank. The owners of the cabin wanted a home that was rough, organic and timeless. The home’s original existence was a nearly derelict cabin, one of the first houses built in the area. The 3,871 square foot home with five bedrooms and five bathrooms was in need of a major overhaul.
Incorporating high-tech steel contrasting with low-tech logs into the design would solve a variety of design problems; leaving it exposed offered a fresh point of view. Most of the rooms on the main level were demolished and the upper floor with its new roofline offered unobstructed views of the San Sophia mountain range. Unified with wood, steel and ceramic tile, the rooms create a backdrop for the refined—mixed with fun—furnishings and fittings. The designer wished to have a contrast with the hard-edged architecture by infusing soft, handcrafted elements into the design.
