Architect Tommy Hein creates a modern masterpiece in Mountain Village. Inspired by its former use as a ranch and the nearby barn relic.  Due to its unique location close to the rim overlooking the valley, the mountains are very close and panoramic.  To capture the views, the entire house is radial about a single point in space to the south of the dining area.  Windows were carefully positioned to screen the road, yet open to the views and open space like petals of a flower.


Quite simply, it's the ultimate art and design experience set in beautiful Telluride Colorado.

The Telluride Art + Architecture Weekend is the ultimate home tour for the connoisseur. Linger at each venue for an intimate peek into the work of our local architects, designers, artists, and chefs who provide home tours, art exhibits, performances, and food and wine tastings at each stop on the tour.
