Smith-Miller + Hawkinson, Architect, Mixed Use Complex
Mixed Use Complex: 2 Condominiums plus Retail Space – Telluride, Colorado. 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. Here at Plunge Landing, just steps from the gondola, the residence is elevated over its commercial space thus allowing unsurpassed cinaramic vistas of the surrounding San Juan Mountain’s peaks and ski slopes.
