Great Spaces: A Japanese-Inspired Mountain Resort in Telluride

Known for its unparalleled natural beauty, history and unique lifestyle, Telluride is a beautiful retreat set in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. Hovering at 8,750 feet above sea level, Telluride sits in a box canyon surrounded by stunning thirteen- and fourteen-thousand-foot mountains—the perfect backdrop for the future owners of this massive “Great Space.”

Nestled in towering spruce trees directly trailside on the Telluride Ski Resort, this custom-crafted residence was inspired by traditional Japanese farmhouse architecture, with its signature massive beams, wood joinery, sliding shoji doors and exceptional levels of detail and workmanship.

Designed by architect Michael Fuller with interiors by Andrea Jovine, the architecture, detail and finish employ the principles of feng shui combined with the timeless craftsmanship of hand tools shaping rare and rugged imported materials. Hand-hewn fir timbers sourced from a Japanese temple frame awe-inspiring views of the surrounding mountain peaks, while clean interiors lines, created with rich hardwoods, plaster, limestone and quarried rock from China create a dramatic yet tranquil retreat.
